Roger Waters album blocked in Italy

Posted June 21, 2017 by Floydian Slip

Sales of Roger Waters‘ new album “Is This the Life We Really Want” have been suspended in Italy over a claim of artwork plagiarism.

Italian artist Emilio Isgrò claims the redacted style of the artwork included with Waters’ album (top) infringes on his so-called “erasure technique” (bottom).

The album’s design is credited to Sean Evans, who also handled “creative direction” for the album; along with Danny Kamhaji and Dan Ichimoto.

Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports a Milan court has halted sales of the album, pending a hearing coming July 27.

New Roger Waters album tracklist; release delayed

Posted April 20, 2017 by Floydian Slip


The release date for “Is This the Life We Really Want?,” the new album from Roger Waters, has been delayed by two weeks. Originally scheduled for May 19, Columbia Records will now release it globally on Friday, June 2.

Pre-orders for the album begin tomorrow in three formats: double 180-gram vinyl LP in a gatefold jacket, four-panel soft pack CD, and digital.

A Columbia press release describes the album as “an unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times” and “a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as ‘Animals’ and ‘The Wall.'”

It’s produced and mixed by Nigel Godrich (Radiohead, Paul McCartney, Beck, U2).

Tracklist for the album is as follows:

  1. When We Were Young
  2. Déjà Vu
  3. The Last Refugee
  4. Picture That
  5. Broken Bones
  6. Is This the Life We Really Want?
  7. Bird in a Gale
  8. The Most Beautiful Girl
  9. Smell the Roses
  10. Wait for Her
  11. Oceans Apart
  12. Part of Me Died

Lyrics for “Wait for Her” were written by Waters and inspired by an English translation by an unknown author of “Lesson from the Kama Sutra (Wait for Her)” by Mahmoud Darwish.

Musicians on “Is This the Life We Really Want?” are: Waters (vocals, acoustic, bass), Godrich (arrangement, sound collages, keyboards, guitar), Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Joey Waronker (drums), Roger Manning (keyboards), Lee Pardini (keyboards), and Lucius (vocals) with Jessica Wolfe and Holly Proctor.

Waters will launch his North American “Us + Them” tour in Kansas City, MO, on Friday, May 26. The tour runs through Oct. 28, finishing in Vancouver, BC.

See the Roger Waters website for complete and up-to-date concert dates.

Early “Interstellar Overdrive” to be released

Posted March 21, 2017 by Floydian Slip

Legacy Recordings will release an early, previously-unreleased version of Pink Floyd‘s “Interstellar Overdrive” on April 15.

Recorded Nov. 31, 1966, at Thomson Studio in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, the nearly-15-minute piece features Syd Barrett, Nick Mason, Rick Wright and Roger Waters.

A shorter version of the instrumental appeared on Floyd’s first album, “The Piper at the Gates of Dawn,” in August 1967.

The 12-inch one-sided single comes a week before Record Store Day; and will be available for sale at “Their Mortal Remains,” the massive Floyd exhibition opening  at the Victoria & Albert’s Museum in London in May.

With artwork taken from an early UFO gig, the 180-gram disc will come with a fold-out poster and postcard featuring the group.

This recording would seem to pre-date the version featured in the Peter Whitehead film “Tonight Let’s All Make Love in London,” and available on the EP “Pink Floyd: London ’66-’67.” Clocking in at just less than 17 minutes, that version was recorded at London’s Sound Techniques on Jan. 11 and 12, 1967.
