Roger Waters has recorded a new version of his Pink Floyd song, "Comfortably Numb."
Originally released on 1979's The Wall, "Comfortably Numb 2022" is available now on all streaming platforms.
Recorded in various studios across North America, Waters says, "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.
"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.'"
