According to billboard.com, the Who's new album has been delayed. Here's the story:
"The new Who album has been delayed, not cancelled," [Pete Townshend] said in a diary posting on his official Web site. "The release date I had hoped for in the late spring or very early summer was whipped from under my nose after three years of writing." The Who will also not tour this summer, as drummer Zak Starkey has committed to playing with Oasis until next January.
...The guitarist said lead singer Roger Daltrey has done "sketch vocals' on several tracks, "and the results are very exciting." But for the time being, he will focus his attentions on writing for his own project, "The Boy Who Heard Music," as well as completing his autobiography.
I guess we can wait a little while longer.
