Legendary Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has previewed material from his upcoming solo album, which has apparently been in the works for several years. The album will be his first solo release in 25 years, having last released Amused To Death back in 1992.
Although Pink Floyd have been long gone, Waters has not shied away from his audience, touring a mammoth production of the classic rock opera The Wall across the globe several times. He’ll be on the road for much of 2017, with his 40-date Us & Them tour running from May 26 until late October. The tour is set to unveil a brand new stage show, and music wise, will be a mix of older solo work, Pink Floyd, and new stuff. “Probably 75% of it will be old material and 25% will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been,” he told Rolling Stone back in October.
The upcoming album will feature twelve tracks, has been produced by Nigel Godrich (best known for producing every Radiohead album since OK Computer), and thematically will focus on love. In that same Rolling Stone interview he also noted that the album will be “part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish.”
