With the hiatus between his 2022 dates in the US, Canada and Mexico, and the European tour of 2023, Roger Waters has just released a new version of Comfortably Numb.

According to the press release, "Comfortably Numb 2022" was recorded during the This Is Not A Drill North American tour and was produced by Waters and Gus Seyffert. Appearing on the track are Waters – Vocals; Seyffert - Bass, Synth, Percussion, Vocals; Joey Waronker – Drums; Dave Kilminster – Vocals; Jonathan Wilson – Harmonium, Synth, Guitar and Vocals; Jon Carin – Synth, Vocals; Shanay Johnson – Vocals; Amanda Belair – Vocals; Robert Walter – Organ/Piano; Nigel Godrich – Strings, amp and backing vocals from Roger Waters The Wall Sessions.

Here's how Waters describes it: "Before lockdown I had been working on a demo of a new version of Comfortably Numb as an opener to our new show This Is Not A Drill. I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful vocal solo from one of our new sisters Shanay Johnson.

"It's intended as a wakeup call, and a bridge towards a kinder future with more talking to strangers, either in "The Bar" or just "Passing in the Street" and less slaughter "In Some Foreign Field." Here it is. Love R. The video is by Sean Evans. The mix is by Gus Seyffert."
