The new album from former PINK FLOYD Bassist/Singer/Songwriter, ROGER WATERS (his first solo album in 25 years!) is titled "Is This The Life We Really Want," and will have a 'Global' release date: June 2nd! Not many details re: the album's musical make-up might be, and it's speculated that, like previous solo albums (Radio K.A.O.S. & The Pros & Cons of Hitch Hiking), this new one will also be a 'concept album. The new album was produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2) and it includes 12 new Roger Waters musical compositions and studio performances. The musicians on Is This The Life We Really Want? are: Roger Waters (vocals, acoustic, bass), Nigel Godrich (arrangement, sound collages, keyboards, guitar), Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Joey Waronker (drums), Roger Manning (keyboards), Lee Pardini (keyboards), and Lucius (vocals) with Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor. The physical album release includes a double 180-gram vinyl LP in a gatefold jacket and a 4-panel soft pack CD. All album formats, physical and digital, are available for pre-order starting April 21. ROGER WATER's last solo album was 1994's 'Amused To Death,' and the new recording will arrive just in time for the kick-off of Waters' North American "Us and Them Tour," which gets rolling May 26th.
