Roger Waters Announces First Album in 25 Years

Legendary Pink Floyd founding member Roger Waters has announced a new solo album, Is This The Life We Really Want? The album will be his first major solo release since 1992, when he released the album Amused to Death.

No singles have been released just yet, but considering his outspoken political opinions, on top of the state of global politics today, it’s pretty likely that it’ll form something of a concept album. Waters is best known for thematically-connected releases after all, most notably Pink Floyd albums The Wall, Animals and The Final Cut.

There’s no official release date yet. However, Waters is embarking on a massive national tour on May 26, so perhaps it’ll be out before then. The tour is titled Us + Them, indicated a Pink Floyd focus, although he did tell Rolling Stone in October that, “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.”

The album announcement was revealed via Waters’ Facebook, along with a 40 second clip of new music. Last year, a little snippet was also shared on his Instagram.
