Roger Waters has given us his third isolation performance video with a new version of his Pink Floyd ‘The Wall’ classic ‘Vera’ and ‘Bring The Boys Back Home’.
Both songs were written by Roger Waters and originally released on ‘The Wall’ in 1979.
“This is the third of our encores from the Us + Them tour,” Waters said in a statement. “This is the first one with any overdubs, not an easy trick to pull off remotely, luckily the band are all brilliant.”
He also broke down each of the songs. “The ‘Vera’ in question is Vera Lynn,” he said. “She was an English singer, songwriter, very popular during the Second World War. Her biggest hit was ‘We’ll Meet Again.’ She was widely known as the ‘Forces’ Sweetheart.’ Our Vera, who is very fondly remembered back in Blighty, died six weeks ago aged 103. So she had a bloody good innings, bless her.”
Guitar on these new isolation performances is by the brilliant Jonathon Wilson.
