The Who have announced details of a new box set celebrating their debut album, My Generation.

The Super Deluxe Edition features unreleased songs, demos, mixes, remasters, new notes from Pete Townshend, 80 page book, rare memorabilia and much more.

A 5CD box set is released on November 18 with 3LP and 2LP editions following on February 10, 2017.

Of the super deluxe box set Pete Townshend says, “Gathering these demos for this collection has been enjoyable; it’s wonderful for me to have these tapes made fifty-two years ago to listen to. I hope you enjoy them. They have a naiveté and innocence, a simplicity and directness, and an ingenuousness that reveals me as a young man struggling to keep up with the more mature and developed men around me. What an incredible group of strong, talented, young and engaging men they were!”

The album contains three previously unreleased songs – “The Girls I Could Have Had”, “As Children We Grew”, “My Own Love” alongside previously unheard demos and mixes.
