Roger Waters knows that re-recording Dark Side Of The Moon was a ‘mad’ idea – but he decided to do it anyway.

The former Pink Floyd frontman says the idea came to him after recording his ‘Lockdown Sessions’ album during the pandemic. He decided to rework Dark Side for its 50th anniversary, “Partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to readdress the political and emotional message of the whole album”.

He wrote “When we’d stopped giggling and shouting ‘You must be f***ing mad’ at one another, we decided to take it on.”

Waters has not yet announced a release date for his re-worked Dark Side of the Moon, which turned 50 on March 1st.
