Roger Waters

Roger Waters has dropped hints about his upcoming solo album, and today the musician announced a title for the project, Is This the Life We Really Want?. The effort will mark Waters‘ fourth solo studio album and just his first since 1992’s Amused to Death.

On a video posted to Waters‘ Facebook page, a sample of the music plays over a video of a document being redacted until it reveals the album title and the vague announcement “coming soon.” Waters previously shared a snippet of the record when he gave fans a glimpse of him and veteran Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich working in the studio via Instagram.

Waters will embark on his extensive Us + Them North American tour this summer and fall starting in late May, and the bassist said that the tour will consist of “25% new” material.

We are going to take a new show on the road, the content is very secret,” said Roger Waters. “It’ll be a mixture of stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things. Probably 75% of it will be old material and 25% will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It’ll be spectacular like all my shows have been.

Roger Waters‘ legendary live performances are renowned as immersive sensory experiences featuring high class, state-of-the-art audio visual production and breathtaking quad sound. This new tour promises to be no exception; following months of meticulous planning and visionary craft, US + Them will inspire crowds with its powerful delivery and take the audience on an unforgettable musical journey.
