David Gilmour Tops The UK Chart With 'Rattle That Lock'

David Gilmour had an impressive first week in the UK for his new solo album, "Rattle That Lock," which gave the Pink Floyd legend his second No. 1 album debut on the chart.

Gilmour had previously topped the chart in 2006 with his album "On An Island" and The Official Charts Company, which keeps the music charts in the UK, says that he once again came out on top, handily beating Lana Del Rey's "Honeymoon," which landed as this week's No. 2.

Gilmour had the following to say about topping the chart, "It's thrilling to get a Number 1 album, we all want to hit the top spot, however long we've been at it, I'm delighted.

"I owe a debt of thanks to Polly Samson, for writing lyrics on four Number 1 albums, The Division Bell, On An Island, The Endless River, and now Rattle That Lock, and also to Phil Manzanera, my co-producer on the last three albums" Read the report here.
