Roger Waters Wraps Demos For First Rock Album in Twenty Years

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters has completed demos for what will be his first new "rock" album since Amused To Death in 1992, according to Rolling Stone. Why the "rock" distinction? Rogers released his classical music opera Ça Ira in 2005.

"I finished a demo of it last night," Rogers tells the magazine of his new work. "It's 55 minutes long. It's songs and theater as well. I don't want to give too much away, but it's couched as a radio play. It has characters who speak to each other, and it's a quest. It's about an old man and a young child trying to figure out why they are killing the children."

 "I'm suffering a little bit of withdrawal after ending the Wall tour," he says. "It's sort of a relief to not have to go out and do that every night, but they're such a great team. There were 180 of us together everyday. That piece was very moving every night."
