Roger Waters Under the Rubble – New Album Demos

Roger Waters just posted a video of him recording a new song in Logic Pro, recording software, on his computer. The composition is called Under The Rubble and features the lyrics below. He recorded it at 11:53am on Thursday 28th December and shared it today, the day after. “Papa, I want to go home now, papa please take me home, mama please tell me I’m dreaming, and ill wake up somewhere and I won’t be alone, mama its dark here, dad has stopped breathing, mama mama”.
