Roger Waters / The Dark Side of the Moon Redux

Roger’s re-recording officially announced

Roger Waters / The Dark Side of the Moon Redux

Word was already out that he had done this, but to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side Of The Moon Roger Waters has officially announced The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux, his homage to the original.

Waters says ‘when we recorded the stripped down songs for the Lockdown Sessions, the 50th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon was looming on the horizon. It occurred to me that The Dark Side Of The Moon could well be a suitable candidate for a similar re-working, partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album. I discussed it with Gus and Sean, and when we’d stopped giggling and shouting ‘You must be fucking mad’ at one another we decided to take it on. 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. But it is a way for the seventy nine year old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty nine 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”. And also it is a way for me to honor a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave and I have every right to be very proud of.’

‘Money’ from The Dark Side of the Moon Redux

Earlier this year, SDE was at the Dolby Atmos playback of the original version of The Dark Side of the Moon, when broadcaster Paul Gambaccini asked Nick Mason what he thought of Roger’s new version. “Annoyingly, it’s absolutely brilliant” came the answer.

The album is available on CD and vinyl and there’s an Amazon-exclusive 2LP violet vinyl, an indie-only blue vinyl edition and JPC in Germany have a white vinyl version. Roger’s Official Global D2C Shop has an exclusive transparent orange vinyl edition, bundles with exclusive numbered prints and standard CD and vinyl editions.

The Dark Side of the Moon Redux will be released on 6 October 2023, via Cooking Vinyl.
