Roger Waters solo album
New album from Roger Waters
Working title: "Heartland"
According to a number of interviews and information on the Roger Waters homepage, work is almost finished on a new Roger Waters solo album with the working title: "Heartland".
Work on the concept album started in February 2000 and paused for the In The Flesh Tour. Recordings should be more or less finished, but there is no news of the release date. The latest release estimate mentioned by Roger Waters in an interview with Jim Ladd is 2006. According to interviews in 2012 the Heartland alnum or at least a song could still be in the works. All news will be posted on this site.
Flickering Flame, 'Woman' and 'Love in Spite of Traffic' has been mentioned as song titles from the new album. 'Each Small Candle' was also mentioned, but according to the sleeve notes on In The Flesh, Roger Waters may have changed his mind. The new songs To Kill the Child and Leaving Beirut are also likely to be on the finished album.
"Themes for discussion"
The official Roger Waters homepage has announced the plans for a new album and some of the themes it may concern. Users can contribute their own opinions to a discussion on a message board.
The following message from Roger Waters probably serves a working treatment for the album:
We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness...
It does not seem so... ?
Is there more than one story?
Do I have personal responsibility?
Do I matter?
The Internet... a spiritual / religious experience?
I am going to start working on a new record in February.
What do you think?
