Meanwhile, The Who‘s Pete Townshend has said he’s ready to record a new album with the band post-lockdown.
The band, who released their last album ‘WHO’ in 2019, this month cancelled their upcoming UK and Ireland tour due to ongoing coronavirus concerns.
Speaking to Uncut, Townshend said he’s been working on new music during the pandemic and “wants to make another” record after lockdown if it makes financial sense.
“There’s pages and pages of draft lyrics,” he said, adding: “If the moment comes, I’ll go in and start.”
