With Roger Waters hard at work in the studio currently, being ably assisted by noted Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, his social media channels are getting a steady flow of glimpses at the activity there. For those who missed the news, Roger is preparing for another mammoth tour, which starts in North America toward the end of May this year, to accompany his long-awaited new album.

Titled "Roger Waters: Us + Them", the tour - which could run to some 200 or so dates, going by interview comments - promises "stuff from my long career, stuff from my years with Pink Floyd, some new things... Probably 75 per cent of it will be old material and 25 per cent will be new, but it will be all connected by a general theme. It will be a cool show, I promise you. It'll be spectacular like all my shows have been".

A recently published interview in the UK's Uncut magazine noted that Roger's new album is scheduled "for an early May release in advance of Waters' first tour date" and naturally we'll keep you appraised of any firm news about this. In the meantime, just published is this short video from the studio, with a very 'Have A Cigar'-esque vibe about it. Could it be from the new album, or just a new arrangement of a song to be heard on the tour?
