Apparently, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey (the only surviving original members) plan to write and release a brand-new album sometime in 2003. This would be The Who’s first all-new material in two decades.

The following is from PeteTownsend.co.uk:

“Met with Roger last week - he had been traveling a fair bit and it was the first time we actually got to sit and talk. We had a great lunch, and a very warm meeting.

“The Who is now being courted by charity show organisers, and we are driven towards supporting our own familiar charity events. We are also receiving tempting offers to play festivals, and enjoying the more honest lure of having such a great band to call on whenever we feel like playing.

“I am urging that we 'keep our eye on the ball'. What is the ball in question?

“I think it must be to try to write some good pieces (I hesitate to say 'songs' in case people think I have ceased to be pretentious) for a new album. I believe it is a tough time to write new music. Even younger musicians I speak to feel burdened by what has gone before.

“Anyway, I have never written quickly. I don't know how long it will take. Expect some new music to arrive in about a year, maybe later. But if I write 15 good pieces, and 10 of them make it to a new CD, we will probably find that only 2 or 3 of them will stand comparison on stage with our old hits. So - doubtful as I am that we will sell over a million records ever again - it will be a lot of work to achieve little when we look back at our first 18 years.

“I think it will be worth the time spent. I am very keen too to see Roger find some creative outlet on this future Who recording. He is full of ideas, passion and energy - he bears quite a disturbed and serious view of the world at the moment. If only I can persuade him to watch that ball...”
