THE WHO Planning New Album for 2019: Loudwire
The Who are planning to put out their first record since Endless Wire came out in 2006. Pete Townshend tells Rolling Stone that he refused to tour this if a new album wasn’t planned, explaining: “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 about my pride, my sense of self-worth and self-dignity as a writer.”
The Who will embark on a U.S. tour this year, with local orchestras joining the band each night, though a list of dates has yet to be announced.
