Roger Waters Record Store Day Release April 2024

Roger Waters is supporting Record Store Day 2024 by releasing a picture disc edition of his Dark Side of the Moon Redux. The event takes place annually and allows artists and fans alike to support independent stores selling Vinyl in the UK and USA. This year’s event takes place on 20th April 2024. There will only be 3,000 copies of this picture disc available meaning this is very much a collectors item. Each of them is individually numbered so highly collectable indeed. There were 9 separate coloured versions of the album available when originally released and this is an additional one. Some of the other coloured ones had less than 3,000. The printing technique looks fantastic and uses technology similar to Dark Side 50th Anniversary Edition picture disc which is released the day before on 19th April 2024. If you have an amazing looking record you don’t want it hidden...

Following his previously celebrated works ‘Signal to Noise’ (2014), ‘3 Days at Sea’ (2016), and ‘Twelve Half Steps’ (2023), Jackson continues to innovate and captivate. His latest creation, ‘AI AJ’, delves into the compelling theme of artificial intelligence and its profound influence on our existence. True to Jackson’s reputation, this album emerges as another compelling, sonically superior production. Andy told NPF, “The theme is one of an AI, self aware and its relationship with the human/listener. What I’ve been slightly oblique about is that the vocal itself is synthetic, an AI. I think that potentially no one would know if I didn’t tell them, it’s incredibly good.
