"Is This The Life We Really Want".
Scheduled for May 2017.

Very good chance I won't make any of his shows. But buy the album? Oh yes!

I would provide a link, but just enter the album title into any search engine of your choice and choose from either Rolling Stone or Classic Rock Magazine for more information.
And apologies to the PA mods if a thread like this already exists.

So it's finally coming out. I think he's been saying he would release his new album for near 15 years now... since he was in the "In the Flesh" tour (the solo one, I believe the Animals tour with Pink Floyd was also called "In the Flesh"). He did two yet unreleased songs on that tour ("Each Small Candle" and "Flickering Flame") that were suposed to be part of his next album... then on the next tour he did another new song "Leaving Beirut". I wonder if any of these ones will see their studio release now.

Wasn't it to be released in September 2014 last time?

This new recording has been proposed so many times over the years...so when I'm actually holding it in my hands - only THEN will I believe it exists!

I can wait another three years or more. I am not in rush for anything from Waters, to be honest.

Can't wait to get my mitts on this.
Animals, The Wall, The Final Cut, Hitch Hiking, Radio KAOS, Amused to Death are all such great albums.

I have too many reservations about Rog's recent activities to make a reservation.

I have heard the few orphan songs of his. But I think we could be getting bite size Roger!
In the interviews Roger said the producer asked him how long Dark Side Of The Moon was.
And I enjoyed seeing pictures of Roger playing his Bass in the studio. Normally you see him with an acoustic guitar.
It's clearly going to be his final studio album elephant in the room addressed.

As far as I know, the new CD will be released after the American tour in the autumn of 2017

Same, he no longer deserves our money. He's become a disgusting person when not performing and in the studio.

I might not even look it up on YouTube. I can honestly care less about his work at this point.

I just saw a preview for a Roger Waters Live movie at, of all things, The Great Wall .

Having paid no attention to what on earth he's been up to, save for vaguely knowing he tours big shows flogging the work of his old band - whats so off-putting?

Roger back on Bass and this might be a spoiler but there's strong rumours the album doesn't feature many guitar solos. The instrumental clips (Two so far on Roger's Facebook page) suggest we're really going to get the closest thing to a Floyd album, more so than The (Still excellent to me!) Endless River and the good but inoffensive "Rattle That Pick" Gilmour solo album!

Is it back to Roger supporting Palestine that's causing the hesitation? That affects the finished product and his music... How again?
And do the same Roger haters apply the same standards to others in their record collection such as (The unfortunate and at least it's more looked down now) musicians who have beat women etc?
(At least not many of those make Prog! )

New album pushed back to June, but you can pre-order from tomorrow.
Doesn't go into that much detail, but it's a tracklist at least.
I think this could be his best album yet!
Roll on June!
