BMG Parts Ways with Roger Waters Due to His Comments on Israel, Ukraine, and the United States
A

A seismic shift in the music world as Roger Waters faces the music of his own creation.

BMG has terminated its publishing agreement with Roger Waters, the legendary co-founder of Pink Floyd, over his controversial comments concerning Israel, Ukraine, and the United States. Waters, known for his critical stance on various geopolitical issues, had been with BMG since 2016, during which plans were made to release a newly recorded version of the iconic “Dark Side of the Moon” album.

However, his increasingly divisive rhetoric, viewed by some as antisemitic, prompted BMG to cut ties. Waters has countered these accusations, framing his departure as a consequence of pressure from pro-Israeli interests and a suppression of his support for human rights in Palestine.
