Roger Waters has re-recorded Pink Floyd's seminal album, The Dark Side of the Moon, and will release it as a solo LP, The Dark Side of the Moon Redux, via SGB Music. The reimagined album coincides with the 50th anniversary of the original, but will arrive without the participation of Waters' formative band. To preview the release, Waters has shared its debut single, "Money."

Waters produced the LP along with Gus Seyffert, and recorded the tracks with a studio band that includes Seyffert, Joey Waronker, Jonathan Wilson, Johnny Shepherd, and Jon Carin. The other members of Pink Floyd who helped to create the original, including David Gilmour and Nick Mason, do not appear on the recordings.

"The original Dark Side of the Moon feels in some ways like the lament of an elder being on the human condition," Waters said in a statement. "But Dave, Rick, Nick, and I were so young when we made it, and when you look at the world around us, clearly the message hasn't stuck. That's why I started to consider what the wisdom of an 80-year-old could bring to a reimagined version."

He continued, "When I first mentioned the idea of re-recording The Dark Side of the Moon to Gus and Sean we all thought I was mad, but the more we considered it, the more we thought, ‘Isn't that the whole point?' I'm immensely proud of what we have created, a work that can sit proudly alongside the original, hand-in-hand across a half-century of time."

Waters announced his plans to re-record the 1973 album earlier this year in an interview with The Telegraph. In the interview, the musician explained he was doing it because "not enough people recognized what it's about, what it was I was saying then." - Acoustic Sounds
