Roger Waters Rerecords ‘Comfortably Numb’: “It’s intended as a wakeup call, and a bridge towards a kinder future” – 2022 – VIDEO – LISTEN/WATCH – Pink Floyd
Before lockdown I had been working on a demo of a new version of ‘Comfortably Numb’ as an opener to our new show “This Is Not A Drill”. I pitched it a whole step down, in A Minor, to make it darker and arranged it with no solos, except over the outro, where there is a heartrendingly beautiful vocal solo from one of our new sisters Shanay Johnson.
It’s intended as a wakeup call, and a bridge towards a kinder future with more talking to strangers, either in “The Bar” or just “Passing in the Street” and less slaughter “In Some Foreign Field.”
Here it is. Love R. The video is by Sean Evans. The mix is by Gus Seyffert.
