Roger Waters has set a release date for his completely re-recorded version of Pink Floyd's classic album The Dark Side of the Moon, and ahead of its October arrival, the songwriter has shared his new take on the album's "Time."

Waters's version, which you can hear below, doesn't feature any incessant clock ringing, rich backing vocals or a searing cosmic guitar solo. Instead, it's a quieted affair not unlike what we heard on his 2017 solo album Is This the Life We Really Want?: aged experience in place of youthful exuberance.

Waters explains in a statement how he "started to consider what the wisdom of an 80-year-old could bring to a reimagined version" of Pink Floyd's celebrated LP, sharing, "I'm immensely proud of what we have created, a work that can sit proudly alongside the original, hand-in-hand across a half-century of time."

The Dark Side of the Moon Redux arrives October 6 via SGB Music, and is now available for pre-order. Its release this year coincides with the 50th anniversary of Pink Floyd's original album.

This year, Waters has appeared in a pair of documentaries exploring the Pink Floyd universe: Squaring the Circle (The Story of Hipgnosis) and the Syd Barrett-centred Have You Got It Yet?
