Meanwhile, Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters has teased his re-recorded version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ album. The band’s former lead singer had initially confirmed plans to release a re-worked version of the album back in February.
Waters also confirmed that this re-worked version would not include any of the Pink Floyd band members. His reported collaborators include Gus Seyffert, along with a “Baptist Minister” playing a Hammond organ.
“I wrote ‘The Dark Side of the Moon’. Let’s get rid of all this ‘we’ [crap]! Of course we were a band, there were four of us, we all contributed, but it’s my project and I wrote it. So… blah!”, Waters said back in February.
In a fresh set of social media posts, Waters has teased this re-recording, including a 12 second clip, as well as the wording ‘DSOTM’ and ‘REDUX’.
The video appears to tease a reworked version of the track ‘Brain Damage’, along with the start of ‘Eclipse’.
Despite this recording not featuring any of his former Pink Floyd bandmates, Nick Mason the Pink Floyd drummer, has given his seal of approval to Waters’ reworked ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ album, calling it “absolutely brilliant”.
