Roger Waters just put out a new song from his upcoming album called The Dark Side of the Moon Redux. You can listen to his fresh take on Pink Floyd’s song “Time” below.
He re-recorded all the songs from Pink Floyd’s old album from 1973 by himself, without his old bandmates. Last month, Waters released the first song from the album, which was called “Money.”
Waters mentioned in a statement when he announced the album:
“I’m immensely proud of what we have created, a work that can sit proudly alongside the original, hand-in-hand across a half-century of time. The original Dark Side of the Moon feels in some ways like the lament of an elder being on the human condition. But Dave [Gilmour], Rick [Wright], Nick [Mason] and I were so young when we made it, and when you look at the world around us, clearly the message hasn’t stuck. That’s why I started to consider what the wisdom of an 80-year-old could bring to a re-imagined version.”
Drummer Mason got a sneak peek of the album and gave it a big thumbs up.
Mason mentioned earlier this year:
“He actually sent me a copy of what he was working on. And I [wrote] to him and said, ‘Annoyingly, it’s absolutely brilliant!’ It was and is. It’s not anything that would be a spoiler for the original at all, it’s an interesting add-on to the thing.”
The Dark Side of the Moon Redux has all 10 songs from the original album and an extra 13-minute new song. It’s coming out on October 6 and you can pre-order it now.
