Roger Waters and his band have tackled the Pink Floyd song "Two Suns in the Sunset" in quarantine. 

Waters revealed that this socially distanced cover is the latest in his new ongoing project to "make an album of all the songs [he] did as encores on the Us + Them tour." 

Most recently, the former Pink Floyd member performed "Mother" last month with his bandmates from their respective homes.

“We did ‘Mother’ first. Had to do it remotely because of COVID-19. ‘Two Suns in the Sunset’ is #2. Hope you like it. I love it. What a beautiful band they are," he shared in a statement. 

Joining him once more in this rendition are the musicians for Waters' This Is Not A Drill tour, including Lucius singers Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, drummer Joey Waronker, guitarists Jonathan Wilson and Dave Kilminster, pianists Jon Carin and Bo Koster and saxophonist Ian Ritchie.

Released in 1983's The Final Cut, "Two Suns in the Sunset" marks Waters' final contribution as a member of Pink Floyd. Before Waters begins his performance in this new rendition, the video warns, "We’re 100 seconds away from midnight on the doomsday clock."

Elaborating on the song's message, Waters noted, "That we allow Nuclear Weapons to exist in a world controlled by deranged sociopaths is, in itself, a deranged arrangement. We are many they are few. We could just say no, to the whole MAD (Mutually Assured Destruction) insanity. It makes zero sense and is potentially omnicidal.”

Last week, Waters recently announced that the physical release of the concert film Us + Them, available digitally now, is planned for Oct. 2.
