New Roger Waters album - Stravinksky's The Soldier's Tale - out next month Print E-mail

Roger Waters - The Soldier's TaleIn an unexpected announcement, it has been confirmed that Roger Waters, in conjunction with the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Orchestra, has been working on a new album - Igor Stravinksky's The Soldier's Tale - to be released via Sony Music Classical, on October 26th, 2018.

For this new recording of this classic, Roger has rewritten the text, telling the whole of the harrowing modern fairy tale, playing not just the Soldier, the Devil and the Narrator, but all the other characters as well!

The track listing for this album is shown below the ordering info; longer term visitors to Brain Damage will recall that Roger performed The Soldier's Tale back in 2008 with the Bridgehampton Chamber Music Festival Orchestra. It clearly made a big impression on him, resulting in this recorded collaboration with the same orchestra, which certainly sounds very intriguing.
