Former Pink Floyd leader Roger Waters says he’s working on his next solo album, his first rock album since 1992’s Amused To Death. 

He recently told Rolling Stone about the concept album: “It’s 55 minutes long. It’s songs and theater as well. I don’t want to give too much away, but it’s couched as a radio play. It has characters who speak to each other, and it’s a quest.”

This isn’t out of character for Waters, as his albums tend to feature narratives running through them. Radio K.A.O.S. (1987) centered on a character named Billy who was confined to a wheelchair but was able to hear radio waves without the aid of a radio. Of course, Waters’ best-known concept album, The Wall, is among the biggest concept albums ever; its semi-autobiographical story follows a rock star named “Pink.”

Some pure speculation: Could Waters’ recent admission that he was wrong to sue Pink Floyd repaired enough of his relationship with David Gilmour that maybe the guitar legend would contribute a solo to the album? Spoiler: Unlikely, but it’s fun to think about.
