As previously reported, Waters recruited Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich to helm the 12-song album, which he’s described as “part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish.” Most of all, though, the forthcoming LP is about love, Waters explained. “It’s pondering … the question of how do we take these moments of love – if we are granted any in our lives – and allow that love to shine on the rest of existence, on others.”

Waters has yet to provide a release date for the album, only saying it’s “coming soon.” Presumably it’ll arrive sometime before he embarks on his lengthy North American tour, which is set to kick off in May.
