Roger Waters premiered a new single titled ‘Déjà Vu’ live on ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ . The former Pink Floyd bassist and singer is set to release his forthcoming album ‘Is This The Life We Really Want?’ on June 2, and has previously shared the lead single ‘Smell The Roses’. The LP, which was produced by Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich, will mark Waters’ first solo album since 1992’s ‘Amused to Death’, which was released 25 years ago.
Waters was joined by drummer Joey Waronker (Atoms For Peace) and singers Holly Laessig and Jess Wolfe from Brooklyn indie band Lucius for the live performance, which also accompanied by an orchestra. Other musicians who contributed to the album include Gus Seyffert (bass, guitar, keyboards), Jonathan Wilson (guitar, keyboards), Roger Manning Jr (keyboards), and Lee Pardini (keyboards).

Drawing inspiration from the current political situation in the US, Waters has stated that the album is an “unflinching commentary on the modern world and uncertain time” and “a natural successor to classic Pink Floyd albums such as Animals and The Wall.”
