Pink Floyd star Roger Waters is recording his first new rock album in over two decades.

The legendary bassist/singer is back in the studio, and has told Rolling Stone magazine that he has already finished a demo of a new record.

Waters also reveals it is turning out to be a concept album, describing the yet-to-be-titled record as a story about “an old man and a young child trying to figure out why they’re killing the children.”

Although the 70 year old released an opera album in 2005, this will mark his first rock project since 1992 record “Amused to Death.”
