Roger Waters Drops New EP Featuring Reimagined Pink Floyd
We have gotten used to seeing news related to Roger Waters in political contexts, but we’re delighted to let you know that this one isn’t about a controversial statement. Well, the musician recently dropped a new EP featuring his take on the various Pink Floyd tracks as well as his own solo material.
Waters had plenty of time during the COVID lockdown. As a passionate and prolific artist, the singer decided to rerecord some solo materials and reinterpreted some of the Pink Floyd classics with a new take. So, as the bassist started to work on the EP during the pandemic, he decided to name it ‘The Lockdown Sessions.’
“Our Us and Them Tour lasted three years,” Waters had previously said. “At every gig, we did an encore after the main show closed with ‘Comfortably Numb,’ the encore was always ‘Mother.’ I can’t remember why I decided to start doing other songs. Anyway, at some point after the end of the tour, I started thinking, ‘It could make an interesting album, all those encores.’”
As fans wanted Roger to perform an encore of the Pink Floyd classics, Waters decided to start taking his own rendition of the tracks, which primarily included several classics from ‘The Wall.’ So, with ‘The Lockdown Sessions’ now released on all streaming platforms, all that is left for you to do is to enjoy Waters’ versions of the cult pieces of Pink Floyd.
