Pete Townshend is keeping himself busy during quarantine – and what he’s up to should make fans happy. In a new interview, he reveals that he’s been taking advantage of his downtime by working on new Who tunes.
Townshend is taking his unexpected dose of time off as a “gift” that he wouldn’t have “had the guts” to take off himself. He feels lucky to be out in the countryside, where he has a studio and plenty of room for his “inspiration and creativity” to flow.
“I have to say I feel really lucky because what I do mainly is spend a lot of time on my own in the studio,” he says. “The only thing I’ve done is looked at the possibility of starting work early on writing new songs for another Who album, as the last one did so well.”
