A host of rockers have teamed up to record a tribute to Pink Floyd's classic 1979 album THE WALL.

Back Against the Wall, which is due to be released on 27 September (05), will include vocals by Jethro Tull's IAN ANDERSON, and features the playing of THE DOORS' ROBBY KRIEGER and YES stars Rick Wakeman, CHRIS SQUIRE and STEVE HOWE.

Another former Yes member, BILLY SHERWOOD, produced the tribute, which also features KING CRIMSON's Adrian Belew and TONY LEVIN, KEITH EMERSON, Styx's Tommy Shaw and Toto's STEVE LUKATHER, as well as actor Malcolm McDowell, who provides spoken dialogue.

Sherwood says, "All the artists involved poured their hearts and soul into this body of work and it shows. It is with the utmost respect to Pink Floyd that we took the challenge."
