Roger Waters - The Lockdown SessionsAvailable now through a variety of download and streaming services is a new release from Roger Waters - The Lockdown Sessions.

The album consists of six songs, and runs for 39 and a half minutes. At the moment, there is no confirmation that there will be a physical release of this, but should this change we will of course let you know.

The tracks on the album are Mother, Two Suns In The Sunset, Vera, The Gunner's Dream, The Bravery Of Being Out Of Range, and Comfortably Numb 2022.

Roger explained that he was going to do an album of unusual encores, but then lockdown struck.

"Our Us and Them Tour lasted three years... At every gig we did an encore after the main show closed with Comfortably Numb… the encore was always Mother... I can't remember why I decided to start doing other songs?... Anyway, at some point after the end of the tour… I started thinking, "It could make an interesting album, all those encores"… "The Encores". "Yeah, has a nice ring to it!" Then…I'm in England doing the Ginger Baker tribute gig one Tuesday night at the Hammersmith Odeon with Eric Clapton and… the following Saturday marching from The Australian Embassy to Parliament Square to make a speech in support of Julian Assange, when bugger me, Covid…Schlummmm!

"For me it was Friday March 13th 2020. Lockdown! So much for the "Encores" project. Unless… We've tacked C. Numb on the end of the collection, as an appropriate exclamation point in closing this circle of love."
