Roger Waters new album progressing
Updated – 15th November 2013:
Speaking to Rolling Stone‘s Andy Greene recently Roger Waters sheds some light on a new studio album.
Roger Waters wrapped up his three-year Wall tour in September, and since then he’s turned his attention toward his first rock album since 1992’s Amused to Death.
“I finished a demo of it last night,” he tells Rolling Stone. “It’s 55 minutes long. It’s songs and theater as well. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s couched as a radio play. It has characters who speak to each other, and it’s a quest. It’s about an old man and a young child trying to figure out why they are killing the children.”

Update – 4th November 2013: Roger Waters speaks on the BBC
In an interview with BBC’s Stephen Sackur, Roger Waters talks of his regrets taking legal action against former Floyd members. He also reveals that he is working on a new album…
The singer and bass guitarist sued David Gilmour and Nick Mason in 1986, in an attempt to prevent them from using the name, claiming the group was “a spent force creatively.”
Speaking to the BBC’s HARDtalk programme, Waters conceded: “I was wrong! Of course I was. Who cares?”
He also revealed he was working on his first new album since 2005.
“I’ve had a few breakthroughs recently which I won’t talk about,” he told Stephen Sackur, “but I am going to make another record.
“I’ve had a very, very strong idea and I shall pursue it. I will make at least one more record and I am really looking forward to getting my teeth stuck into it.”
Waters left Pink Floyd in 1985 and told HARDtalk he still believed it was the “correct thing” to do, “so I could express my ideas unfettered”.
