New Roger Waters Song on Marianne Faithfull’s Forthcoming Album

Pink Floyd co-founder and principal songwriter Roger Waters has penned a new song for Marianne Faithfull’s new album Give My Love to London. The album will be released in September 2014 and does not feature Roger Waters performing as a musician. Some will be disappointed by that, others less so. The new album also features music contributions from Nick Cave, Steve Earle, Anna Calvi, Pat Leonard and Tom McRae, to which Faithfull supplied lyrics. The backing band is made up of Warren Ellis and Tikovoi along with Portishead’s Adrian Utley and Ed Harcourt. Warren Ellis and Jim Sclavunos of Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds are featured as special guests.

It’s very obviously a Roger Waters song...
