    Pete Townshend Is Starting a New Who Record During Coronavirus Isolation

    “I feel really lucky because what I do mainly is spend a lot of time on my own in the studio,” he told the BBC. “I feel like I’ve been given an answer to a prayer”

    The coronavirus may have forced the Who to push all their tour dates until 2021, but that doesn’t mean Pete Townshend has been inactive. In a new interview with the BBC’s Matt Everett, he revealed he’s using the downtime to begin work on new Who music.

    “I’m in Wilshire, I’ve got a country place here,” he said. “I have to say I feel really lucky because what I do mainly is spend a lot of time on my own in the studio. I feel like I’ve been given an answer to a prayer I don’t think I would have had the guts to do, which is to say, ‘Please cancel everything and give me some time in the studio!’ It feels like a gift.”

    His focus now is on a remix of “Beads on One String’ from the Who’s 2019 record Who for possible release as a single. “The other thing I’ve done is looked at the possibility of starting work early — I was going to do this next year — but starting work early on writing new songs for another Who album, as the last one did so well. So I’m knocking ideas around.”

    Another project in the works is a musical adaptation of his 2019 novel The Age of Anxiety. “It’s time-consuming, but it’s really pleasurable,” he said. “I’m working with orchestrations, drum boxes, old vintage synthesizers and of course the usual guitars and piano.”

    Who was the Who’s first album of new material since’s 2006’s Endless Wire and only their second record since 1982’s It’s Hard. Townshend hasn’t released a solo record since 1993’s Psychoderelict. Much of his energy in the past few decades has been devoted to touring. “I’ve never really enjoyed [that] much,” he told the BBC. “But it’s a necessary part of the business. The joy of what I do has been in the composing, the writing, the playing around with studio gear. It’s like being told, ‘Go and play with your train set.’ Oh, that’s terrible!”

    “I’m lucky to be in the countryside,” he continued. “I’m lucky to have space to walk in, we have dogs. I’m not gardening. I’m doing a bit of DIY, but it’s all studio-related. I’ve got an old American camper and at the moment I’m putting a finger drumming studio in the back of that. That what I’m doing today and it’s fun. It feels like it might lead to inspiration and creativity. We shall see.”

    Default The Who Sell Out super deluxe edition

    from superdeluxeedition.com:

    February 26, 2021 by Paul Sinclair

    Box set features 112 tracks, including unheard demos & studio sessions

    The Who‘s 1967 album The Who Sell Out will be reissued as a seven-disc super deluxe edition box set in April.

    The album was originally planned by Pete Townshend and the band’s managers (Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp) as a loose concept album with jingles and commercials linking the songs. This approach was partly because the record label were demanding a new record and Townshend felt as if he didn’t have enough songs!

    In the end, rather than actually going as far as to sell advertising space on the album, the band opted to write their own jingles, with a nod to pirate radio stations and an increasingly consumerist society. The iconic sleeve plays an important part of the overriding concept and was created by David King who was the art director at the Sunday Times, and Roger Law (yes, the guy who invented UK TV’s Spitting Image show, in the 1980s).

    Only The Who’s third album, The Who Sell Out is regarded highly and features the transatlantic top ten hit ‘I Can See For Miles’.

    The new Super Deluxe Edition of The Who Sell Out includes five CDs and two seven-inch singles and features 112 tracks, 46 of which are unreleased. The optical discs break down as follows:

    CD 1 – Original mono mix, mono As & Bs and unreleased mono mixes
    CD 2 – Original stereo mix and stereo bonus tracks
    CD 3 – Studio out-takes, ‘fly-on-the-wall’ versions of early takes of songs from the album sessions, ‘studio chat’ etc.
    CD 4 – ‘The Road to Tommy’ will contain stereo mixes of the studio tracks recorded in 1968 – some previously unreleased – plus 1968 As and Bs mono mixes (all tracks remixed from original 4 and 8-track session tapes in The Who vault)
    CD 5 – 14 of Pete Townshend’s original demos, previously unreleased & exclusive to this set
    Of the two seven-inch singles, one is a Track Records UK reproduction featuring an early mono mix of ‘I Can See For Miles’ (with a single-tracked vocal). This is backed with ‘Someone’s Coming’ (single mix with single-tracked vocal). The other is a Decca USA reproduction of Magic Bus (US/UK mono) backed with ‘Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde’ (original US Decca single mix).



    All these discs come packaged in an 80-page hardcover book which features all the usual photos/memorabilia etc. and comes with a track-by-track annotation and new sleeve notes by Pete Townshend with comments from the likes of Pete Drummond (Radio London DJ), Richard Evans (designer) & Roy Flynn (the Speakeasy Club manager). The book slots into an outer slipcase which features the classic cover art.

    This set also comes with a lot of ‘stuff’. Nine (count ’em) posters and various replicas. See below:

    20” x 30” original Adrian George poster
    Gig posters – City Hall, Newcastle: The Who, Traffic & The Tremeloes
    Saville Theatre 8-page programme.
    Business card for the Bag o’ Nails club, Kingly Street
    Fan Club photo of group.
    Flyer for Bath Pavilion concerts including The Who.
    Crack-back bumper sticker for Wonderful Radio London.
    Keith Moon’s Speakeasy Club membership card
    Who Fan Club newsletter.

    As well as the big box set, there will be a two-CD deluxe and a 2LP stereo vinyl edition of The Who Sell Out. The former features the first two CDs from the box set (the album in stereo and mono with bonus tracks for each) while the later is the stereo version of the album with stereo bonus tracks on the second vinyl LP (there is a mono version of the 2LP set only available via Who/Universal channels).

    The Who Sell Out will be released on 23 April 2021.
