Roger Waters to rent home in Manhattan
Move to the Big Apple could signal progress on new album

An Aug. 22 press report states that Roger Waters is shopping for a home to rent in New York City. The New York Post reported that the former Pink Floyd member and his wife, Priscilla, are looking for a home to rent in Manhattan.

The couple's looking to spend up to $50,000 a month in rent. The article estimates Waters is worth $90 million.

Speculating as to why Waters would want to rent a home instead of buying one, a music industry executive stated in the article, "He's probably recording a new album."

Waters is said to have been working on a new rock record since February. Various press reports have stated the album would be released in 2002, which seems unlikely at this late month. According to a February article in Rolling Stone magazine, the album will be "a concept album about a torture survivor from the Balkans who drives a New York cab."
