Is This The Life You Really Want? is due for release in 2017, a 12-track record he describes as “part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish.”‘
Roger Waters has broken a two decade silence by announcing Is This The Life You Really Want?, co-helmed by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich.
Waters hasn’t set a release date for the album yet, although he is embarking on a massive North American tour in May. Safe to say we’ll hear the record before then.

See Waters in the studio with Godrich in the clip he shared last month, complete with a chunky chunky Pink Floyd bass line:
While Waters has had a pretty clear political agenda in recent times, he did go on to say that the new record was, at it’s heart, about love:
“It’s pondering … the question of how do we take these moments of love – if we are granted any in our lives – and allow that love to shine on the rest of existence, on others.”
