Roger Waters is working on his first rock album in over 20 years!
The former Pink Floyd singer/bassist revealed to Rolling Stone that he’s recently recorded an hour-long demo, which he’s defined as a concept album that includes both theatrical and musical elements.
“I don't want to give too much away, but it's couched as a radio play,” Waters explains to Rolling Stone. “It has characters who speak to each other, and it's a quest. It's about an old man and a young child trying to figure out why they are killing the children.”
However, after wrapping up a three-year run of his “The Wall” tour, Waters remains unsure on whether or not he’ll embark on a series of concerts in support of his new record upon its completion.
“I can't top that tour," Waters tells Rolling Stone. "First of all, you have to accept the fact that I'm not going to live forever. I'm 70 years old. You just have to accept that when you do something as enormous as that tour. The hardest thing in the world is thinking of something to do, so going and doing it is a reward in itself.”
The new album from Waters will mark his first since 1992’s Amused to Death, though no official release date or title for the project has been revealed.
