Listen: New song from Roger Waters

Roger Waters has released the first single from his album Is This the Life We Really Want?, which will be out on June 2nd.

“Smell the Roses” sounds like vintage Pink Floyd, and of course it’s quite topical, given the “reality show” playing out in Washington, D.C. One lyric goes, “There’s a mad dog pulling at his chain/ A hint of danger in his eye… Wake up and smell the roses/ Close your eyes and pray this wind don’t change.”

The album contains 12 tracks, and Waters will plug it on his Us + Them tour, which starts on May 26th in Kansas City. Posted on our Facebook page to preview.
