Roger Waters has gotten together with his touring band to record a socially distanced version of Two Suns In The Sunset, the closing song from Pink Floyd’s 1983 record The Final Cut. Take a listen below.
Had it not been for the coronavirus pandemic, Waters and his group would be embarking on the This Is Not A Drill tour beginning on 8 July in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
In the video’s Youtube description, Rogers revealed that his recent uploads of Mother and Two Suns In The Sunset were to be part of a live album collecting the encores from each show on the now-postponed tour.
“I had an idea to make an album of all the songs we did as encores on the US and Them tour. We did “Mother” first. Had to do it remotely because of COVID-19,” he wrote, adding as a post-script: “That we allow Nuclear Weapons to exist in a world controlled by deranged sociopaths is, in itself, a deranged arrangement.”
“We are many, they are few. We could just say no, to the whole MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) insanity. It makes zero sense and is potentially omnicidal.”
Waters’ touring group is made up of singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig from indie outfit Lucius, drummer Joey Waronker, guitarists Jonathan Wilson and Dave Kilminster, pianists Jon Carin and Bo Koster and saxophonist Ian Ritchie.
In recent Pink Floyd news, Waters shared a video update on his ongoing dispute with former band member David Gilmour, detailing his exclusion from the band’s online presence.
