Pink Floyd’s Nick Mason shared his reaction to Roger Waters’ re-recorded version of Floyd’s classic album ”Dark Side Of The Moon”.
“I heard the rumor that Roger was working on his own version of it. There was this suggestion that this was going to be a spoiler and Roger was going to go head-to-head with the original version and so on.”
“He actually sent me a copy of what he was working on and I write to him and said, ‘Annoyingly, it’s absolutely brilliant!’ It was and is. It’s not anything that would be a spoiler for the original at all, it’s an interesting add-on to the thing.”
A new version of Pink Floyd’s classic song ”Comfortably Numb” can be heard below.
Roger Waters released the new version of the 1979’s song, but, it has no guitar solo.
About the new song version, Waters stated:
“During the lockdown, I made a demo of a new version of ”Comfortably Numb” as an opener for our new show ”This Is Not a Drill”.
”I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro chord sequence, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful female vocal solo from Shanay Johnson, one of our new singers.”
