The Who’s Pete Townshend making a new solo album


Townshend was spotted in the studio with session bassist Guy Pratt (whose portfolio includes work with Pink Floyd, Madonna, The Smiths and more) and drummer Ged Lynch (a longtime collaborator of Peter Gabriel).

Townshend’s most recent efforts as a solo artist came in 2015, when the new songs ‘Guantanamo’ and ‘How Can I Help You’ featured on the compilation album ‘Truancy: The Very Best Of Pete Townshend’.

More recently, the artist has kept busy with The Who – in 2019, the group (as a duo, comprising Townshend and frontman Roger Daltrey) released their first album since 2006, simply titled ‘WHO’. Townshend teased a followed-up last February, but later conceded that he “doesn’t know” when a 13th album will materialise.

Daltrey, for his part, said last March that he was reluctant to make another album with The Who, because there isn’t a “record market anymore”.
