In a week in which relations between Roger Waters and his former Pink Floyd bandmate David Gilmour reached new lows, Waters has revealed that he has rerecorded the band’s 1973 classic The Dark Side of the Moon – cutting the rest of the band out of the album.

Indeed, the other members of Pink Floyd were not made aware of the project, which is reportedly scheduled for release in May. The former Floyd bass guitar player revealed the project in an interview with the Telegraph, arguing that it was his album all along. He then trashed his former bandmates, accusing them being irrelevant to Pink Floyd’s songwriting.
