Legendary British rock group The Who are set to record a new album, lead singer Roger Daltrey has revealed
The Who are working on a new album.
The legendary rock group released 'Be Lucky' - their first new song in eight years - last month, and lead singer Roger Daltrey, 70, has confirmed they're working on new material for the eagerly-awaited record.
He told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "The Who have got a new record out. It's 50 years on and we have passed the audition. We've done one song and we are going to do a whole album. It's exciting."
The London-born singer, who also founded the iconic group, explained that being in a band has changed as they have aged.
He said: "It's not as rock and roll, it could never be as rock and roll because we are older..
"There's drugs but they are just different - it's now all Imodium and those types."
It's been confirmed that 'Be Lucky' - their newest single - will appear on the band's upcoming compilation Who Hits 50
The much-hyped release will be The Who's first new material since 2006, when they launched 'Endless Wire'.
Meanwhile, sing-songwriter Pete Townshend, 69, has also confirmed that the group intend to head out on tour to mark the 50th anniversary since the formation of the classic line-up.
