New songs (!!!) from The Who off of Endless Wire (Oct 31), their first studio album in 24 years, streaming here. The songs are called “It’s Not Enough” and “Tea & Theatre.” At first listen these tracks sound anthemic and dramatic (especially the first one), and concert-ready.
And if you are going to be following their upcoming tour in support of the album, here’s some good news:
THE WHO TO LAUNCH A NEW SIRIUS CHANNEL
Starting September 21st, WHO fans can keep up with the band’s every move on a 24/7 Sirius Satellite Radio station. They’ll broadcast nightly performances from the North American tour, as well as previously unreleased live shows, interviews and backstage reports from guitarist Pete Townshend and his partner, singer/songwriter Rachel Fuller.
“This is the most exciting thing I can imagine . . . our own radio channel, straight to our fans,” Townshend said in a statement via Sirius. “I’m completely revved about this.”
Apparently, Roger Daltrey wasn’t as enthusiastic about the webcasts portion, which the band reportedly curtailed at his suggestion.
