Roger Waters has revealed a reimagined version of Pink Floyd’s classic “Time.” The track is from Waters’ forthcoming album The Dark Side of the Moon Redux which arrives on October 6. Stream the official music video for the new version of “Time” below.

“It is a reinterpretation, and I hope we can gain more from it than we did back in 1973 when it [The Dark Side of the Moon] first came out because it’s been a part of our lives for fifty years,” Roger says. “And yet, we are still not yet breathing in the air.”

The Dark Side of the Moon Redux will be available on CD, standard black vinyl, exclusive transparent orange vinyl, gold and cassette. Physical versions are available for pre-order now HERE. Fans will be able to stream the album digitally as well.

Waters previously released new versions of “Time” and “Comfortably Numb, the latter of which was used as the intro on his recent This Is Not a Drill Tour.

“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,” Waters said. “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 wake-up 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.’”

Pink Floyd’s The Dark Side of the Moon was released fifty years ago on March 1, 1973 via Harvest/Capitol. It peaked at No. 2 on the UK Albums Chart, and No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Featuring the hit tracks “Us and Them,” “Money,” and “Time,” it is widely regarded as one of the greatest masterpieces in music history.

Roger Waters released his fourth solo album Is This the Life We Really Want? back in 2017 via Columbia Records. For this outing, Waters worked with famed producer Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Beck, Paul McCartney). The record peaked at No. 3 on the UK Albums Chart and the Billboard Top Rock Albums Chart. It also landed at No. 11 on the Billboard 200.
