Roger Waters’ New Album Is Coming – He Offers Preview of First Album in 25 Years (2017 Tour Dates Inside)


Roger Waters is giving followers an initial taste of his first album of latest materials in 25 years.

Waters mentioned last year that he’d begun recording his first set of new songs since 1992’s Amused to Death. “We’ve got some really good work in the can,” he told Rolling Stones in October. “We did some work in London and in Los Angeles.”

At first, Waters was planning one other concept record — like his previous solo albums, Amused to Death, 1987’s Radio K.A.O.S and 1984’s The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking, as well as several Pink Floyd LPs — however he mentioned that Godrich helped him narrow its focus by cutting parts of the unique theme.

“I wrote this entire thing – part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish,” Roger Waters mentioned. “I played this to Nigel, and he goes, “Oh, I like that little bit” – about two minutes long – “and that bit.” And so we’ve been working.”

Although it’s been a quarter century since his final album, Roger Waters has been busy. He resurrected The Wall onstage and made a movie about it, played the successful Desert Trip festival last yr and announced another tour for later this yr. You can see all of the dates for the run, which begins in May, beneath.
