    Default Roger Waters - Is this the life we really want?

    Gents, new album with short teaser formally announced at rogerwaters.com
    In a previous interview for ATD in surround launch, Roger said he thought his new album in 5.1 will sound great, so fingers crossed for it to become reality.
    No release date yet, just "coming soon"

    I can't argue with that.

    Isn't it the only new material in the last 20 years? Or did I miss something?

    And opera and four of five new songs (leaving Beirut, to kill the child, hello I love you, each small candle, the ballad of Jean Charles de menezes, clear crystal Brooks...)
    Not too prolific anyways

    Other than the opera, which I don't care for, did the others get a formal release? Are they on disc?

    The first three were issued as singles, each small candle appears on a best of, the ballad in the last live iteration of the wall and Brooks will likely appear on the new record

    I was forgetting about flickering flame and lost boys calling, both appearing on flickering flame compilation together with each small candle.
    Lost boys calling is a good song with a nice eddie van Halen solo (if my memory is not failing), but the solo was cut from this release

    He could (and hopefully will sometime down the road) release a compilation of all his studio recordings between ATD and this new record.

    Nigel Godrich is producing this record, and the clip released sounds more like Radiohead than anything Roger's ever done, so this could be quite different which could be good. Has Godrich ever produced anything in 5.1? I would imagine that whether or not this is released in surround will be as much to his discretion as the artist.

    Someone must have had that idea before, as the first compilation is called Flickering Flame - The Solo Years Volume I !

    Yes, but that was more a "greatest hits" compilation, including material from the other solo albums. I'm talking about a more "odds & sods" collection.
