Roger Waters has revealed the title of his first new rock album for 25 years.
Waters announced Is This The Life We Really Want? with a video teaser which promises the record will be “coming soon.”
You can see the clip below.
Waters has been working on his new album with producer Nigel Godrich.
Along with the new album, Waters is also prepping his new tour, called Us + Them – named after a song on Dark Side Of The Moon. The tour begins on May 26 in Kansas City, Missouri. Waters has recently added 11 new dates to the North American itinerary, including a third show at Los Angeles’ Staples Center and a second at Denver’s Pepsi Center.
“We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” said Waters in a statement on his website. “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.”
