The upcoming new record will be the veteran band’s first since 2006’s ‘Endless Wire’.

That record ended a 24-year wait for a full LP following 1982’s ‘It’s Hard’.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, The Who’s Pete Townshend disclosed that he told promoters Live Nation that he wouldn’t agree to a new tour unless they band had a new songs in the works.

“I said I was not going to sign any contracts unless we have new material,” Townshend explained. “This has nothing to do with wanting a hit album. It has
nothing to do with the fact that The Who need a new album. It’s purely personal. It’s about my pride, my sense of self-worth and self-dignity as a writer.”

The untitled album currently exists as 15 demos, all of which were written and recorded by Townshend last year.

Bandmate Roger Daltrey is expected to record vocals for the tracks later this year, with a 2019 release currently planned.
