Pete Townshend has confirmed that he is writing a new musical and that The Who will release a record in 2010.
Writing on his blog, Townshend explained that musical ‘Floss’ will tell the story of a pub musician and his wife’s turbulent relationship.
Townshend wrote: “Floss is an ambitious new project for me, in the style of Tommy and Quadrophenia.
In this case the songs are interspersed with surround-sound ‘soundscapes’ featuring complex sound-effects and musical montages.”
Townshend went on to explain where fans might be able to watch ‘Floss’ and revealed that The Who will release a record next year.
He wrote: “Floss will be a son-et-lumiére musical piece, intended for outdoor performance, or arenas.
“Several of the more conventional songs from Floss will be featured on a forthcoming Who recording for release in 2010.
“Floss will be heard in concert for the first time in 2011, at a venue and date yet to be established.”
