Roger Waters has a new video out. It's the second one for his new album, Is This the Life We Really Want?, and it's for the song “Wait for Her.”
The song was inspired by the late Palestinian poet Mahmoud Darwish, whose “Lesson From the Kama Sutra (Wait for Her)” is referenced in both the lyrics and video.
Waters and his band are in the video as is actress and dancer Azzura, who starred in the video for "The Last Refugee.” Creative director Sean Evans tells Rolling Stone, “She’s a trained dancer and when not dancing, she works with kids. She did such a fantastic job during the filming of ‘The Last Refugee’ that Roger and I wanted to include her in ‘Wait for Her.’ The song has a yearning that we felt a band performance alone wouldn’t quite address.”
Waters is keeping busy this summer plugging the album on his Us + Them tour, which hits Columbus, Ohio on Thursday and Chicago on Saturday and Sunday.
