Pete Townshend: The Who mini-album in june, new cd in september

Pete Townshend

Pete Townshend talks to Relix about the new releases by The Who:

A new Who album is scheduled for release in September, but I have decided on a June European release for The Glass Household, a condensed version of a mini-opera of the same name based on my novella, The Boy Who Heard Music. In the excerpted form, the mini-opera is six songs that run to just over 11 minutes; in its complete form, it's about ten songs running to about 30 minutes of music, which will form the backbone of the new Who album. Roger and I both sing on it. Pino Palladino has been playing bass, with Zak Starkey on drums, John "Rabbit" Bundrick on Hammond organ. On the mini-opera, Peter Huntington, who plays with Rachel Fuller, plays drums because Zak is finishing up touring with Oasis.
