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.”
