Roger Waters has just recorded a brand new version of his Pink Floyd classic, "Comfortably Numb."
Originally released from the iconic album ‘The Wall’ in 1979, "Comfortably Numb 2022" is now available to fans on all streaming platforms.
Talking about the song, Waters said, "During 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.”
He added, "It’s intended as a wake-up call, and a bridge towards a kinder future with more talking to strangers, either in 'The Bar' or just 'Passing in the Street' and less slaughter 'In Some Foreign Field.'"
