Containing 11 new songs, WHO was recorded between London and Los Angeles during spring and summer 2019, and was co-produced by The Who’s Pete Townshend and D. Sardy (Noel Gallagher, Oasis, LCD Soundsystem).
Singer Roger Daltry and guitarist and songwriter Pete Townshend are joined on the album by drummer Zak Starkey and bass player Pino Palladino, with contributions from musicians Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, Carla Azar, Joey Waronker and Gordon Giltrap.
The record features the single Ball and Chain, listen below:
The Who are one of the biggest rock bands in music history. Emerging in the mid-1960s, their brash style and poignant storytelling garnered them one of music’s most passionate followings and the band was eventually inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 1990.
Having sold more than 100 million records worldwide, with 17 Top Ten albums – including the 1969 ground-breaking rock opera Tommy – their anthemic back catalogue of hits includes I Can’t Explain, The Kids Are Alright, My Generation, Baba O’Riley, Won’t Get Fooled Again, Pinball Wizard, Who Are You and You Better You Bet.
Last summer The Who performed a sold out gig at Wembley Stadium, where they debuted two songs from their new album, Ball and Chain and Hero Ground Zero.
The Who will hit the road in 2021 for an arena tour accompanied by a full orchestra, performing some of their biggest hits alongside tracks from their forthcoming new album WHO.
