Roger Waters
Legendary musician Roger Waters has recorded the original song "Hello (I Love You)" to be featured in New Line Cinema's upcoming sci-fi film The Last Mimzy (to be released nationwide on March 23). Waters collaborated with Academy Award-winning composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Grammy Award-winning Pink Floyd producer James Guthrie (The Wall) on the song, which marks only the second time Waters has ever recorded an original song specifically for a motion picture.

"It has been great collaborating with (director) Bob Shaye and Howard Shore on The Last Mimzy," says Waters. "I think together we've come up with a song that captures the themes of the movie, the clash between humanity's best and worst instincts, and how a child's innocence can win the day."

Shaye adds, "It's an honor to have a huge talent like Roger Waters contribute a song to The Last Mimzy."

"A warm, midtempo song inspired by the film's theme of the delicate balance between ecology and technology, "Hello (I Love You)" will be featured in the film and will run over the end credits. The six and a half minute song will be available on New Line Records official soundtrack for The Last Mimzy, which is scheduled for a spring release.

"Hello (I Love You)" was co-written by Waters and Shore, co-produced and engineered by Waters, Shore and Guthrie, and executive produced by New Line Cinema's President of Music Paul Broucek. The song was performed by an A-list team of musicians including drummer Steve Gadd (Eric Clapton, Paul Simon, Steely Dan), guitarist Gerry Leonard (music director/guitarist for David Bowie), and Waters on bass and vocals." Additionally, The Last Mimzy's 6-year-old star Rhiannon Leigh Wryn appears on the track, singing along with Waters on the song's chorus.

Globally renowned as founder member, lyricist and principal composer of legendary rock band Pink Floyd, Waters has also had a successful solo career and masterminded one of the largest concerts ever "The Wall Concert" in Berlin in 1990. Waters is a member of the U.S. and UK Rock and Roll Halls of Fame, and in 2005 released the opera album Ca Ira, which reached #1 on both the U.S. and UK Classical charts. This marks only the second time that Waters has ever penned an original song for a film, the first being "Lost Boys Calling" in the 1998 drama The Legend of the Pianist on the Ocean, coincidentally distributed by New Line.

Guthrie served as producer and studio engineer on a number of Pink Floyd and Waters' solo albums starting with The Wall in 1979. He was also responsible for the sound at the live performances of The Wall. He remastered Dark Side of the Moon for the 20th Anniversary Edition CD and produced Waters 2000 live album In The Flesh and the Pink Floyd compilation Echoes.

Shore is among the most respected, honored and active film composers and music conductors at work today. He has won multiple Academy Awards and Grammys for his work scoring such films as The Lord of the Rings trilogy, The Aviator, The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, and New Line's Seven among others.

Based on the acclaimed sci-fi short story by Lewis Padgett, The Last Mimzy tells the story of two children who discover a mysterious box that contains some strange devices they think are toys.

The Last Mimzy features an ensemble cast that includes Timothy Hutton ("Ordinary People," "General's Daughter"), Joely Richardson ("The Patriot," "Nip/Tuck"), and Rainn Wilson ("The Office"). It is produced by Michael Phillips (The Sting, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) and directed by Bob Shaye (executive producer of, among other films, The Lord of the Rings trilogy). Shaye is also founder, Co-Chairman, and Co-CEO of New Line Cinema.

I saw a segment on this while watching a 'behind the scenes' thing on HBO over the weekend........

It just makes me want to go see the movie even more now.
It appears to be a very intelligent sci-fi family movie based on the novel "Mimsy were the borogoves".

Really liked this one, very dark and light at the same time, the kind of stuff Floyd did so well.

i had to turn that one off... the background vocals, and hell, lead vocals are too strong in the mix over such a light, almost non-existant, tune

well... I like the song. Its cool. But i mean... come on Roger, did you REALLY have to go and be a tool and reference the only two albums that Pink Floyd put out that the general public at large know about? (if you people didn't pick up on that... wow) haha

good song tho. just kinda cheesey lame subliminal marketing on Waters' part; but then again... he always loved fucking with people's heads.

The best Roger Waters solo. I am a huge Floyd fan but I can't stand Roger Waters solo material. They must of cleaned his voice up in the studio because his voice has gone way down hill. Too much screeching during The Wall tour. I think Roger has become humble again that is why his music has improved. During the Live Eight appearance he was almost in tears. That is great considering he was such an asshole for so long. Oh yeah Wall fans Roger has got the ok to put The Wall on broadway something Roger has wanted for a long time. Hello I Love You sounds almost like something pre Dark Side Floyds best era.
