Rock duo The Who have begun the long hours at the studio to record their twelfth studio album that follows up the 2006 released "Endless Wire". Guitarist Pete Townshend and vocalist Roger Daltrey as stated on their official site, will work with producer T-Bone Burnett to revisit old sound.
"I am hoping to come up with some songs for a more conventional Who record," Townshend wrote on the site. He admitted that Burnett is an "old friend" who will help them in the new studio album. The plan is to go back as far as "Quadrophenia", their 1973 album that went platinum in U.S.
He also added that there will be a number of shows this Summer that they will take lightly so that they won't be distracted in writing the new materials. "I would want to do that purely for fun, and I don't want to turn it into a big tour. I need to stay focused on my writing," Townshend added.
