Roger Waters streams Money from The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux

Roger Waters is streaming “Money” as a preview to the release of “The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux.”

Due October 6, the project presents an epically ambitious reinterpretation of one of the most famous and acclaimed albums in history, fifty years on from recording the original with Pink Floyd.

Recorded by Pink Floyd when Waters was just 29, “The Dark Side Of The Moon” was an extraordinary multidimensional meditation on the human experience, the passage of time, descent into madness, and the abyss.

Five decades later, “The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux” sees Waters reinterpret and embellish his original creations with a new perspective gleaned from his own life experience, philosophy, and the wisdom of age, with added emphasis on the philosophical, social and political themes of the original.

In addition to reimagining each of The Dark Side of the Moon's original ten tracks - which, like the original, run seamlessly together to create one epic composition- The Dark Side of the Moon Redux LP format will feature a bonus 13-minute original composition inspired by the re-recording as a final track.

"The original Dark Side of the Moon feels in some ways like the lament of an elder being on the human condition,” says Waters. “But Dave, Rick, Nick and I were so young when we made it, and when you look at the world around us, clearly the message hasn't stuck. That's why I started to consider what the wisdom of an 80 year-old could bring to a reimagined version.

"When I first mentioned the idea of re-recording 'The Dark Side of the Moon' to (multi-instrumentalist and collaborator) Gus Seyffer and (film director) Sean Evans we all thought I was mad, but the more we considered it, the more we thought 'isn't that the whole point?'.

"I'm immensely proud of what we have created, a work that can sit proudly alongside the original, hand-in-hand across a half-century of time."
