Pink Floyd's final album featuring Roger Waters to be reissued on vinyl

The final Pink Floyd album featuring Roger Waters before he left the band is to be reissued on vinyl for the first time in more than 20 years.

The Final Cut, released in 1983 and written solely by Waters, was the British prog-rock group’s 12th studio album and marked the end of the bassist’s career with the band.

The anti-war album is to be reissued alongside the band’s 13th studio album A Momentary Lapse Of Reason.

For the past year, Pink Floyd Records has been releasing the band’s entire studio collection as stereo remastered versions on heavyweight 180g vinyl.

The Final Cut was a global chart-topper and explored the Falklands War, Thatcherism and political betrayal.

A Momentary Lapse Of Reason – the band’s first album not to feature founding member Waters – was released in 1987 and marked a significant change in music style as they moved towards an experimental use of drum machines and samples.

Both albums will be available on reissue from January 20.
