Roger Waters - The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux album on CD, coloured vinyl, digital and cassetteRoger Waters - The Dark Side Of The Moon Redux, his reimagining of the iconic 1973 Pink Floyd album, has now been announced. Coming on October 6th, it will be available in a variety of different editions, including digital, CD, cassette, and a range of double vinyl LPs in almost 'any colour you like'!

Roger: "When we recorded the stripped down songs for the Lockdown Sessions, the 50th anniversary of the release of The Dark Side Of The Moon was looming on the horizon. It occurred to me that The Dark Side Of The Moon could well be a suitable candidate for a similar re-working, partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album. I discussed it with Gus and Sean, and when we'd stopped giggling and shouting 'You must be ****ing mad' at one another we decided to take it on. It's turned out really great and I'm excited for everyone to hear it. It's not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable. But it is a way for the seventy nine year old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty nine year old and say, to quote a poem of mine about my Father, 'We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us'. And also it is a way for me to honour a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave & I have every right to be very proud of."

You can get your first proper experience of Roger's new take on this album, with the official lyric video for Money, below.

The album will be available on digital platforms, as well as CD, and as mentioned above, the range of double vinyl editions, which includes standard black (links below), a selected-store-only blue vinyl (please check with your local record store for this, or order below through HMV.com), an Amazon exclusive violet vinyl (links below), a white vinyl which is a German exclusive through jpc.de, a yellow through FNAC in France, a red (limited to 500 copies) from Newbury Comics in the US, and Roger's official store has an exclusive transparent orange vinyl edition, bundles with exclusive numbered prints and standard CD and vinyl editions, and even a gold cassette! There's now also a transparent edition via Feltrinelli in Italy, and a green vinyl from RecordStore.co.uk.

Interestingly, the fourth side of the vinyl includes "an original composition", which isn't on the CD or cassette editions (we don't yet know about the digital offerings). The Times newspaper noted that "a new 13-minute original ambient bonus track inspired by the re-recording will feature on the ten-track album, which will be released on the record label Cooking Vinyl on October 6 and supported by a series of live shows." The live shows, being held at the London Palladium on October 8th and 9th, are sold out, although it is worth checking from time to time in case they have production tickets released.
