Is This The Life We Really Want? LP
Roger Waters, the creative power and song writing force behind Pink Floyd, is releasing his first rock album in 25 years, Is This The Life We Really Want?.
Roger Waters' last studio album, 1992's Amused To Death, was a prescient study of popular culture, exploring the power of television in the era of the First Gulf War. The long-awaited follow-up, 2017's Is This The Life We Really Want?, is an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times. Waters' forthcoming LP serves as a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as Animals and The Wall.
Produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2, "From the Basement"), Is This The Life We Really Want? includes 12 new Roger Waters musical compositions and studio performances.
Is This The Life We Really Want? features 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.
