Roger Waters teases a rework of the Pink Floyd classic ‘Money’ ahead of ‘The Dark Side of the Moon Redux’ release on October 6.

Roger Waters has confirmed October 6, 2023, as the release date for The Dark Side of the Moon Redux, an ambitious reinterpretation of the acclaimed album, fifty years since the original Pink Floyd recording. The album’s lead single, Waters’ reinterpretation of “Money,” is out today with an accompanying lyric video.

Recorded with Pink Floyd when Waters was 29, The Dark Side of the Moon has long been hailed as an extraordinary “multidimensional” meditation on the human experience, the passage of time, and the abyss. Its opening line, “The memories of a man in his old age — are the deeds of a man in his prime,” foretells Waters transcending the fifty years since the album’s release to reinterpret his original creation with a new perspective.

Waters’ gravelly vocal performance adds fresh and profound layers to his classic lyrics with a pearl of tongue-in-cheek wisdom. The production strips back Pink Floyd’s psychedelic orchestration into something raw, experimentally inventive, and richly textured.

In addition to reimagining each of the album’s original ten tracks, The Dark Side of the Moon Redux LP will feature a bonus 13-minute original composition inspired by the re-recording as a final track.

“The original Dark Side of the Moon feels in some ways like the lament of an elder being on the human condition. But Dave (Gilmour), Rick (Wright), Nick (Mason), and I were so young when we made it, and when you look at the world around us, clearly, the message hasn’t stuck. That’s why I started to consider what the wisdom of an 80-year-old could bring to a reimagined version,” said Waters.

“When I first mentioned the idea of re-recording The Dark Side of the Moon to Gus (Seyffert) and Sean (Evans), we all thought I was mad, but the more we considered it, the more we thought, ‘isn’t that the whole point?’

“I’m immensely proud of what we have created, a work that can sit proudly alongside the original, hand-in-hand across a half-century of time.”
