Roger Waters performed at the Newport Folk Festival on Friday 24th July 2015 treating fans to several of his well known numbers as well as a brand new song!

The new song is called “Crystal Clear” and features Roger performing piano on stage for the first time in his musical career! You can watch a video of the performance below – best be quick before it gets deleted off Youtube!

Rogers’ all-acoustic performance had a range of songs from his career including some from his Pink Floyd days, some from his solo album days and he even threw in some covers for good measure!

The set list went like this: Pink Floyd (“Mother”, “Wish You Were Here”, “Brain Damage”, “Eclipse”), solo material (“Amused to Death”, “The Bravery of Being Out of Range”), a new song called “Crystal Clear”, and covers of Bob Dylan’s “Forever Young”, Buddy Miller’s “Wide River to Cross”, and John Prine’s “Hello In There”.

There were also some excellent photos from the event posted on Roger Waters’ Facebook page by Sean Ellis.

 

Watch New Roger Waters Music Video – The Child Will Fly

A new music video for Roger Waters The Child Will Fly has appeared on YouTube for Roger Waters fans to enjoy!

The two and a half minute song features contributions from Shakira and Eric Clapton and Gustavo Cerati (from Soda Stereo, one of the biggest groups in Argentina). It was written 6 years ago for the Fundacion Alas charity to raise money to help disadvantaged children.

What do you think of the song? Let us know on the forum (opens in new window).  I love the guitar solo towards the end.

After listening to the new Roger Waters song above (video 2014) feel free to watch a behind the scenes “making of” video to give context to the new Roger Waters song video… lets call that a music video!
