Some of the most popular songs from the album include Money, Time, Us and Them, and Brain Damage. The album has been praised for its musical and lyrical depth, as well as its innovative production techniques. It is widely considered to be one of the greatest albums of all time, as it is the band’s best-selling album, with over 50 million sales.


Earlier past February, Waters announced he was hard at work for the re-recording version of Dark Side Of The Moon. Recently, he shared a 52-sec video through his social channels and revealed the footage of himself in the studio listening to the new version of Us and Them. Sharing the experience of the re-recording, Waters admitted it would be a tribute for the original album.

“When we recorded the stripped-down songs for the Lockdown Sessions, the 50th anniversary of the release of ‘Dark Side of The Moon’ was looming on the horizon,” he reveals. “It occurred to me that ‘Dark Side of the Moon’ could well be a suitable candidate for a similar re-working, partly as a tribute to the original work, but also to re-address the political and emotional message of the whole album.”

Waters then revealed his excitement about the re-recording. According to him, the work sounds great.

“I discussed it with Gus and Sean, and when we’d stopped giggling and shouting ‘You must be fucking mad’ at one another we decided to take it on,” he continues. “We are now in the process of finishing the final mix. It’s turned out really great and I’m excited for everyone to hear it.”

Concluding his letter, Waters said it would also be the way to honor that the former members proud of: “It’s not a replacement for the original which, obviously, is irreplaceable. But it is a way for the seventy-nine-year-old man to look back across the intervening fifty years into the eyes of the twenty-nine-year-old and say, to quote a poem of mine about my Father, ‘We did our best, we kept his trust, our Dad would have been proud of us’. And also it is a way for me to honor a recording that Nick and Rick and Dave and I have every right to be very proud of.”
