Roger Waters shares video for poignant new song “The Last Refugee”.
First solo LP in over two decades, Is This the Life We Really Want?, lands next month.
On June 2nd, Roger Waters will triumphantly return with his first solo album in 25 years, Is This the Life We Really Want?.
The Pink Floyd frontman’s offering, today’s “The Last Refugee”, follows suit quality-wise.
Waters’ voice is tender here, and backed by a similarly gentle mix of piano and minimal percussion. Its corresponding music video, helmed by Waters and past collaborator director Sean Evans, takes the emotional level up a notch by reminding us of the humanity of the Syrian refugee crisis — something that’s too often forgotten and obscured when politics and bureaucracy come into play.
