Roger Waters - Amused To Death reissue: further details Print E-mail

Roger Waters - Amused To DeathAs many of you are already aware, later this year, Roger Waters and long term collaborator, Pink Floyd's sound engineer, James Guthrie, revisit Waters last solo album, Amused To Death. In pursuit of reimagining the music with brand new stereo and 5.1 mixes, James Guthrie captures Roger's original sonic intentions in 21st century definition for this important new release.

The music questions the omnipresent media culture which we now live in, which works to seduce us into apathetic oblivion in front of our flat screens, whilst the horrors of the world rumble on. This extraordinary album challenges our relationship to mass media and conjures an image of today's population amusing themselves to death.

The new mixes, along with additional never before released content and brand new graphics, will be included in the 2014 reissue release from Columbia/Legacy Recordings and Acoustic Sounds.

James Guthrie will preview samples of these newly mastered stereo and 5.1 tracks on Saturday (April 12th, 2014) at Pink Floyd: Sound, Sight, and Structure, this weekend's Pink Floyd interdisciplinary conference hosted at Princeton University which Brain Damage is reporting in detail from.

As yet, no firm date for the release is forthcoming. Regular Brain Damage readers will be aware that the date has moved a few times and as we get confirmed dates we will let you know, but at this stage all we know for sure is that it is later this year. Also, the artwork shown here is from the original release, and not representative of the new edition.

At present, pre-orders are being taken at Amazon.com and Amazon Canada, both of which offer a pre-order price guarantee. As other outlets offer this, we will update you accordingly.
