Roger Waters Announces New Album “Is This The Life We Really Want?” With Teaser Video

first_imgRoger Waters has been hinting at a new album for some time now, even recently posting a photo with Radiohead producer Nigel Godrich together in the studio. Today he confirms new music with an official announcement. Dubbed Is This the Life We Really Want?, the upcoming project comes 25 years after the Pink Floyd bassist’s most recent solo album, Amused To Death(1992).The announcement came strong with a video on his Facebook page, with a sample of the new music over a video that eventually displays the album title Is This the Life We Really Want?. With no other details, Rogers promises the album is “coming soon.” The album title seems to hint that there will be some political dialogue, as Rogers has been an outspoken voice against political corruption for decades – even recently sharing official footage of the “Pigs (Three Different Ones)” performance on Inauguration Day with the caption “A note from Roger: The resistance begins today.” Get a taste of what to expect from the new album below:Waters is currently preparing for his upcoming Us And Them North American tour, which kicks off end of May and extends through late October. The tour is named after the iconic song on 1973 Pink Floyd album Dark Side Of The Moon, on which Waters recently reflected in an interview with NPR. Waters says, “I was listening to [the song] the other day. There’s a line which goes, ‘With, without, and who’ll deny that’s what the fighting’s all about?’ And the answer to the question is this: Almost everyone. Almost everyone will deny that ‘with/without’ is what the fighting’s all about. My contention is that it is. That’s why my new tour is going to be called ‘Us and Them.’ It’s specifically about that line.”Waters promises a mixture of Pink Floyd songs, solo material, and songs from the upcoming album!

Syracuse safety Antwan Cordy has ‘been out there’ in practice

first_imgUPDATED: Sept. 10, 2017 at 10:39 p.m.Syracuse safety Antwan Cordy is back at practice, head coach Dino Babers said Wednesday morning on the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches teleconference. He declined to talk specifics.Cordy, 5-foot-8, 181-pound redshirt junior, left the season opener against Central Connecticut State in the first quarter, with SU up 14-0. He appeared to have suffered a lower right leg injury on the play. Cordy later returned to the sidelines using crutches, with a brace on his right leg.The redshirt junior apparently suffered a lower right leg injury after throwing himself into a tackling scrum. The Orange (1-0) lost him early in its 50-7 drubbing of Central Connecticut State (0-1). He did not return to the field in part because SU was in command of the game.Six-foot-three, 203-pound Toledo graduate transfer Jordan Martin replaced Cordy at safety, performing “just OK,” Babers said. Martin finished with three tackles, all solo.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Cordy’s one of the best players on our football team,” Babers said. “I think (Martin) came in and did a solid job.”Cordy tweeted Monday night a few dozen prayer emojis. Also on Monday, Babers declined to give an update on Cordy’s status, citing the Labor Day holiday limiting doctor availability. As a sophomore, Cordy started all 12 games at strong safety. He ranked second on the Orange with 68 total tackles and first with 12 tackles for loss. As a junior, he switched to free safety, and in the seven full quarters he played, he made eight tackles, broke up a pass and recovered a fumble. He broke his left forearm in the fourth quarter of Week 2 against Louisville and missed the rest of the season.Last Friday, he left the game in the first quarter. Until Wednesday morning, his status was unclear.“He’s been out there and we’re hoping for the best for Mr. Cordy,” Babers said.  Comments Published on September 6, 2017 at 11:47 am Contact Matthew: [email protected] | @MatthewGut21center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
