The album has been produced by Dave Eringa who has worked with The Who and Tom Jones and er Kylie Minogue. The Who frontman has cited songs by such artists as Nick Cave’s Into My Arms, Stevie Wonder’s You Haven’t Done Nothing and How Far by Stephen Stills as an inspiration.
Daltrey has hailed this record as:
“A return to the very beginning, to the time before Pete Townshend started writing our songs, to a time when we were a teenage band playing soul music to small crowds in church halls. That’s what we were, a soul band.”
Daltrey explained how life experience has influenced his singing,
“And now, I can sing soul with all the experience you need to sing it. Life puts the soul in. I’ve always sung from the heart but when you’re 19, you haven’t had the life experience with all its emotional trials and traumas that you have by the time you get to my age.”
Who bandmate Pete Townshend guests on seven of the tracks and there are also performances from keyboardist Mick Talbot (Dexys Midnight Runners) and guitarist Sean Genockey who’s produced Suede and The Manics.
Daltrey will headline London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 22 in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
