The Who stream new song All This Music Must Fade

The Who are streaming the track, “All This Music Must Fade”, as the latest preview to their forthcoming album, “Who.”

The tune is “dedicated to every artist who has ever been accused of ripping off someone else’s song,” says Pete Townshend. “Seriously? Our musical palette is limited enough in the 21st century without some dork claiming to have invented a common chord scheme.”

The opening track from “Who” follows the set’s lead single, “Ball And Chain”, ahead of the project’s release on November 22.

“Who” marks the UK band’s first new album in thirteen years, since the release of 2006’s “Endless Wire”; mostly recorded in London and Los Angeles during Spring and Summer 2019, the set was co-produced by Townshend and D. Sardy (who has worked with Noel Gallagher, Oasis, LCD Soundsystem, Gorillaz) with vocal production by Dave Eringa (Manic Street Preachers, Roger Daltrey, Wilko Johnson).

Daltrey and Townshend are joined on the album by long-time Who touring drummer Zak Starkey and bassist Pino Palladino along with contributions from Simon Townshend, Benmont Tench, Carla Azar, Joey Waronker and Gordon Giltrap.

The Who will wrap up their fall series of North American shows with the third of three appearances at The Hollywood Bowl later this month.
