Roger Waters "Déjà Vu"
Published May 08, 2017Pink Floyd's Roger Waters is gearing up to release his new solo album Is This the Life We Really Want? next month, and he's given us another sampling of the record with a song called "Déjà Vu."
The track follows previously shared single "Smell the Roses," and it hears the Pink Floyd bassist imagining what he would do as God — making the human face "more resistant to alcohol" and "less prone to aging," for starters.
He goes on to wax existential on the dire state of the modern world, accompanied primarily by acoustic guitar, piano and a sweeping string section.
As previously reported, the upcoming album was produced by Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich, and Waters has described it as "part magic carpet ride, part political rant, part anguish."
The record is due out on June 2 through Columbia. Listen to "Déjà Vu" down below.
