Watch: Roger Waters Performs Pink Floyd’s ‘Two Suns in the Sunset’
Roger Waters, live in a studio setting, recorded a socially removed interpretation of Pink Floyd’s “Two Suns in the Sunset,” the end track from the band’s 1983 collection The Final Cut.
Prior to the presentation, the high contrast video commenced with a message: “We’re at one hundred seconds to midnight on the doomsday clock. This is the the closest the Human Race has ever been to nuclear catastrophe.”
“I had an idea to make an album of all the songs we did as encores on the US and Them tour. We did ‘Mother’ first. Had to do it remotely because of Covid 19. ‘Two Suns in The Sunset is #2. Hope you like it. I love it,” Waters wrote in the video portrayal on YouTube.
“What a beautiful band they are,” he included, offering credit to remote artists Dave Kilminster, Joey Waronker, Lucius (Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig), Gus Seyffert, Jonathan Wilson, Jon Carin, Bo Koster and Ian Ritchie.
As a reference, Waters included, “PS. That we allow Nuclear Weapons to exist in a world controlled by deranged sociopaths is, in itself, a deranged arrangement. We are many they are few. We could just say no, to the whole MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) insanity. It makes zero sense and is potentially omnicidal.”
