Members of The Who are celebrating the release of the rock band’s first studio effort of new material since 2006 with the arrival of WHO, out today via Polydor Records.

WHO follows up 2006’s Endless Wire, and was recorded during sessions held in London and Los Angeles earlier this year.

Co-produced by guitarist Pete Townshend and D. Sardy, the 11-track LP (14 total tracks on the deluxe version) sees founding members Townshend and Roger Daltrey backed by the longtime Who rhythm section of drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino PalladinoWHO also features guest contributions from Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, Carla Azar, Joey Waronker, and Gordon Giltrap.

“I think we’ve made our best album since ‘Quadrophenia’ in 1973, Pete hasn’t lost it, he’s still a fabulous songwriter, and he’s still got that cutting edge,” Roger Daltrey explained in a statement with the album’s initial announcement back in September.

“There is no theme, no concept, no story, just a set of songs that I (and my brother Simon) wrote to give Roger Daltrey some inspiration, challenges and scope for his newly revived singing voice,” Townshend also added with the fall announcement. “Roger and I are both old men now, by any measure, so I’ve tried to stay away from romance, but also from nostalgia if I can. I didn’t want to make anyone feel uncomfortable. Memories are OK, and some of the songs refer to the explosive state of things today.”
