    Lovely. I can’t wait. Sure to be my party soundtrack for the summer.

    And those teasers are fantastic! Classic early-1970s Floyd style. Hopefully that’s not just an “I’m the real Pink” dig at the others but an acknowledgement that we love the man for a good reason. Looking forward to some ace Trump samples too…

  2. Rasputin says:

    Well, first of all, the next concern …
    How many formats will be released at this time?

    1 – CD
    2 – CD + DVD
    3 – CD + BD
    4 – Vinyl
    5 – Picture vinyl
    6 – SACD
    7 – Box set
    8 – Super Box set limited edition

    Little or a lot?

    25 years since his last studio album this could be his swansong then looking forward to getting the cd and vinyl if not too pricey. there is bound to be a live album soon with the current tour as well.

  4. HalloweenJack says:

    Very excited to hear this album and see the new show!
    Would love to hear him perform the full album live!

    I read somewhere this will have a loose conceptual feel as many of Waters’ solo output has. Seems to concern a chap who is babysitting who goes on a journey as to why so many children are still being killed/wounded in wars etc. We’ve been missing a slice of belligerent conceptual-ness for some time!!

    Well it’s not far away we will have to wait and see, with his previous Amused, i would imagine there will be a number of formats and perhaps his last studio album at the age of 75, i am sure & hopeful once the new album is due, a couple of weeks before it’s official release there will be some “More” samples.

    This’ll certainly cheer up any drizzly Sunday.

    @ Rasputin
    Dont forget the Super Hyper Deluxe Edition signed by whoever ;-p

    • Rasputin says:

      See item №8.
      This time, Roger Waters does not sign Jimmy Smith. Maybe sign Polly Samson?

      By the way, from the third blue-ray disk in the network was only the first part – Genuine Love / The Story Of Roger Waters The Wall Live
      The second and third parts, The Simple Facts & Os Gemeos Mural Time Lapse, were not.

  9. Avitom. says:

    Hey Rasputin, don’t forget the special Japanese CD with an extra track. Mr. Waters needs more money for his toy, the BDS

  10. Graham Yapp says:

    Looking forward to this one,and hopefully some UK/Euro shows to go with it.

  11. AlexKx says:

    Why do people not treat him like when Michael Jackson released “Invincible” when that was his first studio l.p. in six years at that point calling him a “has been”?

  12. Jesper says:

    Does anyone know anything about musicians on the album? Any guitar heroes?

  13. Eric says:

    I saw Roger at Desert Trip. I am expecting the lp and tour to be something special

  14. Sounds like Pink Waters
