Nick Mason streams performance of vintage Pink Floyd track

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets are streaming video of a 2019 performance of the vintage 1969 Pink Floyd track, “Green Is The Colour”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming package “Live At The Roundhouse.”

The tune originally appeared on the UK band’s soundtrack to the 1969 film, “More.”

“Live At The Roundhouse” presents Mason’s outfit in concert at the legendary London venue last spring during the group’s first tour as they delivered music that had rarely been featured in Pink Floyd’s live shows since their early days.

Originally scheduled to be issued on April 17, the project has been moved to a September 18 release date “due to the current situation and considering the well-being of our fans,” says the band.

“First of all, Nick, Gary, Guy, Lee and Dom are all thinking of you and your families at this very challenging and worrying time,” says the group on social media. “They wish you all the very best, and hope you all stay safe and stay well. Once things return to some sense of normality, they're really looking forward to playing for you, and hearing what you think of ‘Live At The Roundhouse’ once it is in your hands.

“Based on some social comments concerning the release date of ‘Live At The Roundhouse’ changing, the band, and Sony Music, wanted to offer some further clarification of the reasons:
• At such extraordinary times they want to do all they can to help, prioritizing post / deliveries for vital supplies & limiting interaction for these very important delivery workers to ensure everyone's safety

• Sony's main warehouse has been placed on lockdown with no date confirmed for re-opening so they cannot complete the manufacture, or supply stock, on this or indeed any other Sony release currently

• Music retailers, particularly small, independent stores, will be hit hard by these closures and we want to support them by issuing this at a time where each store can be open for customers. Additionally to this, Amazon has informed all record companies non-essential products like CDs and DVDs will not be prioritized and may not be shipped
“At this difficult time we want to support our fans, and the wider public, and safeguard their health. We are planning to release some more new full song videos digitally for you all to enjoy starting this week so stay tuned for further details and most importantly, stay safe.”

Nick Mason’s Saucerful Of Secrets recently postponed their upcoming spring tour of the UK and Europe amid the coronavirus pandemic.
