This news comes shortly after the release of the Deluxe Edition of The Who Sell Out, the group’s ambitious and influential 1967 concept record. Speaking with Rock Cellar about the album and its back story, guitarist Pete Townshend had this to say:

Rock Cellar: Pete, the idea of a new Who album at that time was something that kind of came as a surprise to you. How did you land upon the concept of The Who Sell Out?

Pete Townshend: You’re right. It was a surprise, and there are a couple of shades to that surprise. One was that our managers, Kit Lambert and Chris Stamp, were diverted to a great extent away from being managers of The Who to running this record label they had called Track Records, which featured Marc Bolan and, of course, Jimi Hendrix. And it became a money machine for them, aside from the Who. But in the background, there was also a contractual obligation to the parent company, which I think was probably called Polydor back then and they just needed a Who album and we didn’t have one ready because we’d been working so hard.

You know, we’d been on the road with Herman’s Hermits, we’d done Monterey (Pop Festival). We’d been all over the place. But, even without those huge events, we certainly had been incredibly busy. And although I had a lot of material, I didn’t really feel any of it was appropriate to The Who, only “I Can See For Miles.”
