The Who May Record an Album for 2014
As Roger Daltry spoke with NME about the upcoming series of Teenage Cancer Trust gigs at Royal Albert Hall in March, he revealed an exciting piece of news to the magazine: The Who may reunite to record a new album.
The band’s last studio effort was 2006’s Endless Wire, although Live at Hull, based on a February 1970 performance, surfaced in 2012. Daltry revealed he and Pete Townshend have been working on new material: "Pete's got hundreds of songs, so the only question is whether we get around to it, but he wants to make an album and I'm always ready and raring to go. We'll see. I never know what I'm doing next, it's about what comes through my letterbox tomorrow, but I don't see why we wouldn't. My voice is still in good shape. The hearing isn't so great, but the voice is fine."
Daltry further went onto say that this album, out later in 2014, could be used to mark the group’s 50th anniversary. Speaking about that, he said: "I don't know. Possibly it'll be this album. I haven't thought about it, to be honest. We didn't think it was going to last the week, let alone 50 years. We were The Who, we used to break up after every show."
The Who performed at the Teenage Cancer Trust series in years past, including playing Quadrophenia in 2010. This year, The Cure, One Republic, Ed Sheeran, and Paolo Nutini are expected to be on the bill.
