The Who Delay Covers Album, Townshend Working On New Songs

By |

The Who's covers album has been delayed, thanks in part to producer T Bone Burnett's obligations to the Robert Plant & Alison Krauss tour. "It still probably will happen, but I think the smaller the idea is kept, the better," Roger Daltrey told Billboard.com. "Small and fluid, maybe just something for our Website." The band initially planned to include Motown classics and James Brown songs on the proposed covers album. In the current lull, Daltrey said, Pete Townshend is working on new songs. "[Townshend] doesn't like to talk about it," Daltrey said. "He doesn't know if he likes it until he knows what it's going to sound like. You just have to be there for him if he needs you." Daltrey also think he has one more solo album left in him, adding, "I feel there must be an enormous amount of really talented songwritgers out there who can't sing, so, please, send me your songs."
