Former Pink Floyd man Roger Waters performs new single on Late Show with Stephen Colbert
Roger Waters has given his new single Deja Vu its live TV debut, on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The track comes from the former Pink Floyd man’s upcoming album Is This The Life We Really Want? which is released on June 2 via Columbia Records. It will be Waters’ first studio album since 1992’s Amused To Death. The album was produced by regular Radiohead collaborator Nigel Godrich.
Waters was joined for the performance by singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig of Brooklyn indie band Lucius, drummer Joey Waronker from Radiohead spinoff project Atoms For Peace, and a string section.
Is This The Life We Really Want? has been described as an “unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain times,” and “a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as Animals and The Wall.”
