The Who New Album Details
Artist: The Who
Release Date: TBA
Record Label: Decca Records
According to The Guardian, Lead guitarist Pete Townshend said in a statement that fans could expect “dark ballads, heavy rock stuff, experimental electronica, sampled stuff and Who-ish tunes that began with a guitar that goes yanga-dang”.
There is no set release date quite yet, but The Who plan for later in 2019. Their last album, “Endless Wire” was their eleventh studio album and was released in 2006.
The tracklist has not been released yet. This page will be updated as more information is released.
Moving On! Tour
The band also announced their “Moving On!” 2019 Tour that will start in May. The official The Who website will have all the tour dates so check that out to see which cities the band will visit.
True fans of The Who will not want to miss this tour. For lead singer Roger Daltrey, this could be his last tour. “I have to be realistic that this is the age I am and voices start to go after a while,” he told the Mirror. “I don’t want to be not as good as I was two years ago.”
This tour won’t just include their old material, but there is the promise of some new content to showcase during the tour. Townshend claimed he wouldn’t commit to the tour if they didn’t have new material. The Who also assured fans that, even though there would be an orchestra it would not detract from how Daltrey and Townshend deliver their music.
