The Who Release First Song In 8 Years: Be Lucky


Like George Harrison and the Rolling Stones The Who are releasing a new compilation album.
I think it's great! It should please many fans.
The Who will mark their 50th anniversary with a brand new compilation and a new song.

‘Be Lucky’ is the first new music from The Who since their ‘Endless Wire’ album eight years ago and that was their first album in 24 years.
The new song ‘Be Lucky’ is the only new music on ‘Who Hits 50’, to be released in Australia on October 31. The band features The Who founders Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey with Zak Starkey (drums) and Pino Palladino (bass) with the keyboards from former Style Council member Mick Talbot.

The track was produced by Dave Eringa best known for his work with the Manic Street Preachers and Wilko Johnson + Roger Daltrey.

I think this version of "Behind Blue Eyes" by Jon English is my favourite version.

But "Substitute" is my favourite song by The Who!!
