The Who have released “All This Music Must Fade,” the second single from their upcoming studio album, WHO.

“All This Music Must Fade” follows the release of “Ball And Chain” from WHO, the band’s first new studio album since 2006’s Endless WireWHO comes out November 22 and is currently available for pre-order through multiple platforms here.

Roger Daltrey said in a statement to Rolling Stone about WHO, “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.”

Pete Townshend, in his own statement, detailed what fans can expect from this set of songs.

“This album is almost all new songs written last year, with just two exceptions. 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,” said Townshend. “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. I made new home studio demos of all these songs in the summer of 2018 using a wide collection of instruments old and new.”
