Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey recently did press in London to talk about The Who's upcoming show at Wembley Stadium in July.
Asked byThe Sunabout the band's new album,, Townshend said the songs are about the changing roles of women, homelessness, gun crime and political uncertainty. "There’s nothing new in music. When we write music today, we are stealing.”
One of the songs, he said, is about a one-night stand he had in the '80s. “We’d had a few drinks and when we’d got to her house, five or six in the morning, her teenage daughter had to vacate the bed to go to school so that we could get in and have sex.”
Recording will resume in April with the plan to release it in May or June in conjunction with the Moving On tour. This will be the first Who album since Endless Wire in 2006.
