The quarantine blues isn’t stopping Roger Waters from playing the old school tunes. The iconic musician composed a lockdown version of Pink Floyd’s ‘Mother’ in his home studio.

To make the song even better (if possible), Waters collaborated with members with his touring band. Everyone in the band played their part of the famous song from a distance.

“Social distancing is a necessary evil in Covid world. Watching “Mother” reminds me just how irreplaceable the joy of being in a band is,” Waters shared on Twitter.

Waters is one of the many musicians who had to postpone their tour due to the ongoing global pandemic. The ‘This Is Not a Drill’ U.S. tour will take place in 2021.
