Roger Waters recently shared a snippet of music from his re-recorded version of Pink Floyd‘s Dark Side of the Moon, which celebrated its 50th anniversary on March 1.
Waters shared a 52-second clip on YouTube, showing him listening to the first verse of a reworked “Us and Them” in the studio. He also posted a lengthy description of the project, which does not feature his former bandmates.
“We are now in the process of finishing the final mix. It’s turned out really great and I’m excited for everyone to hear it. It’s not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable,” Waters said. “But it is a way for the 79-year-old man to look back across the intervening 50 years into the eyes of the 29-year-old and say, to quote a poem of mine about my father, ‘We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us.'”
He added, “And also it is a way for me to honour a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave and I have every right to be very proud of.”
Waters recently revealed that he is re-recording The Dark Side Of The Moon.
