The Who Want To Make New Album for 50th Anniversary

This year, The Who are celebrating their 50th anniversary as a band with new music. In an interview with NME, Roger Daltrey said he will reunite with Pete Townshend to make a new album.
"Pete's got hundreds of songs," he said. "So the only question is whether we get around to it, but he wants to make an album and I'm always ready and raring to go. We'll see. I never know what I'm doing next, it's about what comes through my letterbox tomorrow, but I don't see why we wouldn't. My voice is still in good shape. The hearing isn't so great, but the voice is fine."
If Daltrey and Towshend do record together this year, it will mark The Who's 12th album and their first since 2006′s Endless Wire. Daltrey told Radio.com late last year, "We're maybe doing an album next year, and touring in 2015, which will be our last big tour. That's not to say that we won't play again. We'll still do events, and we will find new ways to perform, whether it's sitting down in smaller venues for a week, so we don't have to do the schlepping. It's the schlepping that's killing us.
