Roger Daltrey discusses the possibilities of new albums from The Who


The Who co-founder, Roger Daltrey, has poured doubt over the chances of creating new albums with the iconic rock band.

While The Who made a surprise comeback in 2019, releasing their first new music in 13 years with the album Who, Daltrey remains unconvinced that the group could return once more.

“Will there be another Who album? I don’t know,” Daltrey told Uncut. “There’s no record market any more. Everybody talks about streaming, but have you seen what artists get from that? It’s a joke.”

Daltrey added: “It was great to get an album out there, something that the fans liked, and I was really proud of it. But far too much money was spent making it.”

While Daltrey remains doubtful that The Who could mark another return to the studio, his bandmate, Pete Townshend, offered a little more optimism: “There’s pages and pages of draft lyrics,” he said in regards to making a new album after the coronavirus lockdown. “If the moment comes, I’ll go in and start,” he added.
