Roger Waters talks new album and tour with Rolling Stone
Posted by madhack on Apr 20, 2017
Roger Waters recently spoke with Rolling Stone about his upcoming US+Them tour and the new album, Is This the Life We Really Want?, that will come out during the tour. The piece is short but covers a bit about the idea behind the tour, the inspirations for the album, and some of the process that led to it (Mr. Waters was apparently convinced by his producer, Nigel Godrich—a veteran of numerous Radiohead albums, among many others—that a concept written as a theatrical radio play was "less than ideal" for a rock album, but notes that they were able to adapt songs from it).
Is This the Life We Really Want? will be released on June 2 on CD, vinyl, and digital download, and will be available for pre-order April 21.
