The Who to Record Motown Cover Album


The Who


The Who will team up with producer T Bone Burnett to cover Motown and R'n'B songs that they used to perform.

While materials are still accumulated for their new album, The Who will release a collection of vintage R 'n' B covers with the help of producer T Bone Burnett. The set will be much like the Motown and James Brown songs that they performed early in their career, RollingStone.com reported.

"We're digging through lots of material and seeing what will work," said Burnett. "There's an incredible treasury of songs in the mode of what they used to play. Not 'Heat Wave', but ones that people probably haven't heard of." Burnett added that they may start recording in London this Fall and guitarist Pete Townshend may also chip in some new materials in it. "It might be a combination of both. We're still turning it over," Burnett continued.

In February this year vocalist, Roger Daltrey and Townshend announced that the band is working on a new album "I am hoping to come up with some songs for a more conventional Who record," Townshend said.

Meanwhile, the band has been scheduled to perform on July 12 in Los Angeles for VH1's Rock Honors.
