Roger Waters shares Time from The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux

Roger Waters is sharing a lyric video for the track “Time” as the latest preview to the release of “The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux.”

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

"When we recorded the stripped down songs for the Lockdown Sessions, the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ was looming on the horizon,” explains Waters. “It occurred to me that ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ could well be a suitable candidate for a similar re-working, partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album.

"I discussed it with (multi-instrumentalist and collaborator) Gus Seyffer and (film director) Sean Evans, and when we'd stopped giggling and shouting 'You must be ****ing mad' at one another we decided to take it on. It's turned out really great and I'm excited for everyone to hear it.

"It's not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable,”
he adds. “But it is a way for the seventy nine year old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty nine year old and say, to quote a poem of mine about my Father, 'We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us'. And also it is a way for me to honor a recording that Nick (Mason) and Rick (Wright) and Dave (Gilmour) & I have every right to be very proud of."

With more than 50 million copies sold worldwide, “The Dark Side of The Moon” is one of the most iconic and influential albums in music history.
