Roger Waters has treated fans a look inside the recording of his upcoming album.
Waters has posted a video of himself playing guitar in the studio with producer Nigel Godrich, as well as a photo of the pair together. See below.
Waters last rock album was 1992’s Amused To Death, though in 2005 he released Ça Ira, a three-act opera.
The album is due in May, ahead of a new tour, Us + Them, which is scheduled to begin on May 26 in St. Louis and wrap up October 28 in Vancouver, covering more than 40 dates in 36 cities.
“We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” said Waters. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. 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.”
