Pink Floyd’s co-founder and former singer Roger Waters his reimagined version of the track “Time.”
The track follows the release of “Money,” taken from his reinterpretation of Pink Floyd’s classic 1973 album dubbed The Dark Side of the Moon Redux which is set to be released on October 6.
The record with its vinyl edition will feature a new 13-minute original composition inspired by the Dark Side rerecording process. Upon announcing the upcoming album, Waters said:
“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.”
Waters has also previously announced a special concert where he will perform his new version of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon. The event will be held at the London Palladium on Sunday, October 8, and tickets are already on sale via Planet Rock.
Gus Seyffert, Joey Waronker, Jonathan Wilson, Johnny Shepherd, Via Mardot, Azniv Korkejian, Gabe Noel, Jon Carin, and Robert Walter are just a few of the great artists that will perform throughout the show, alongside the stage design by Sean Evans, who has worked with Waters for a long time.
The rocker saw an opportunity to pay tribute to the original work and also revisit its political and emotional message. After discussing the idea with his team, they decided to take on the project. He clarified that the new version is not meant to replace the original, which is irreplaceable, but rather serves as a way for him, as a seventy-nine-year-old, to look back at the work he and his former bandmates were proud of when they were twenty-nine.
Paying respect to his old bandmates from Pink Floyd, he stated:
“It is a way for me to honour a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave and I have every right to be very proud of. Happy 50th to Dark Side of the Moon.”
