Roger Waters: "Attempting to move people is a huge privilege"

The former Pink Floyd singer/bassist/songwriter releases his first solo album in 25 years

“I don’t know how twenty-five years got behind me,” Roger Waters muses. “I made Amused To Death and then I decided to dip my toe back into the live performance pond, and I’ve spent a lot of time doing that since.”

Since leaving Pink Floyd, Waters has built a rich, politically charged career, including hundreds of epic performances of The Wall, and contested support for the controversial BDS Movement (boycott, divestment and sanctions) against Israel. Produced by Radiohead’s go-to guy Nigel Godrich, Is This The Life We Really Want? delivers a commanding commentary on recent world events.
