Roger Waters recently responded to the comments made by drummer Nick Mason on the rework of Pink Floyd‘s seminal album ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’, which marked its 50th anniversary on March 1st, fueling hopes that Waters and Mason could reunite.

Waters had also recently shared a 52-second clip on YouTube, showing him listening to the first verse of a reworked ‘Us and Them’ in the studio. Waters accompanied the clip with a lengthy statement in its description, acknowledging, “it’s not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable”

He continued: “But it is a way for the seventy-nine-year-old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty nine year old and say, to quote a poem of mine about my Father, “We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us”. And also it is a way for me to honor a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave and I have every right to be very proud of.”

Elsewhere in the statement, Waters said the rework would be a good chance to “re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album” and that the record is “now in the process of finishing the final mix”.

The clip marks the first music from Waters’ ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ re-recording project, which he said he was embarking on because “not enough people recognised what it’s about, what it was I was saying then”.
