A clip from the upcoming concert film documenting a May 2019 show that Pink Floyd drummer Nick Mason‘s new band, Nick Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets, played at the famous London venue The Roundhouse has premiered at RollingStone.com.
The video, which you can also see at Saucerful of Secrets’ official YouTube channel, captures the group performing a 12-minute-plus rendition of the spacey, psychedelic 1968 Pink Floyd tune “Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun.” The film Live at The Roundhouse, and an accompanying album, will be released April 17 as a double-CD/DVD package, a two-LP vinyl set, and a Blu-ray disc.
Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets exclusively performs material that Pink Floyd recorded prior to its classic 1973 album The Dark Side of the Moon. The group also features Spandau Ballet guitarist Gary Kemp, longtime Pink Floyd and David Gilmour touring bassist Guy Pratt, and veteran session musicians Lee Harris and Dom Beken on guitar and keyboards, respectively.
As previously reported, in advance of Live at The Roundhouse’s physical release, the film will be shown in select theaters around the world for one night only this Tuesday, March 10. The screenings also will feature a pre-recorded Q&A featuring Mason and the band’s other members answering fan-submitted questions. Tickets to the screenings are available at NickMasonFilm.com.
Meanwhile, a limited-edition 12-inch vinyl single featuring two songs from the Live at The Roundhouse album — “See Emily Play” and “Vegetable Man” — will be released April 18 as part of the 2020 Record Store Day campaign. The disc also will feature an custom etching on its B-side.
Mason’s Saucerful of Secrets will launch a European tour on April 23 in Guildford, U.K. Check out all the dates on the band’s official website.
