Pete Townshend Working On New Song About Guns


Pete Townshend has given another online update about The Who's upcoming album, revealing that he is working on a new song "about guns."

The video shared by the guitarist from London's Metropolis Studios shows him giving a demo of the song with producer Dave Sardy. Townshend is seen playing an electric 12-string and acoustic guitar.

"It's about guns," Townshend says with a chuckle, "which I know nothing about, apart from the fact I don't like them much."

Some of the song's lyrics appear on a computer screen. Among the words that are audible are: "The junkie's on the wire/ You can arm yourself -- with nukes and drones/That damn gun will misfire…Remember me/when I am gone/I am the fool/ who got it wrong/But one thing I said/You can rely on/That damn gun will misfire."

According to Townshend, Roger Daltrey "is doing vocal rehearsals on the songs somewhere else," while Simon Law plays guitars.
