Who is the twelfth studio album by the English rock band The Who, released on 6 December 2019. In January 2019, The Who confirmed that they were working on their first album of new material in 13 years, due to contain "dark ballads, heavy rock stuff, experimental electronica, sampled stuff and Who-ish tunes that began with a guitar that goes yanga-dang", as Townshend stated; as with previous Who albums, vocalist Roger Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend recorded their parts of Who separately."Ball and Chain", released as the first single on 13 September 2019, is a re-recording of a Pete Townshend solo song called "Guantanamo", released on his 2015 compilation Truancy: The Very Best of Pete Townshend. A second song, "All This Music Must Fade" was released as a single on 3 October 2019 and a third, "I Don't Wanna Get Wise" received a release on Spotify and iTunes in November 2019; the album will be supported by their Moving On! Tour. "Got Nothing to Prove", one of the Deluxe edition bonus tracks, was recorded as a demo in 1966, but was discarded by their manager and producer Kit Lambert due to lack of emotional resonance in the lyrics.
"Sand" another early demo from 1966 is included on the Japan edition of the album as a bonus track. "Got Nothing to Prove" was offered to Jimmy James and the Vagabonds, who declined it. The album debuted at #2 on the U. S. Billboard 200 album chart for the week ending 21 December 2019; the album cover was designed by pop artist Peter Blake whose work includes the band's Face Dances and The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album covers, it is a patchwork of 25 squares: 22 squares showing different coloured images placed around three squares forming the word "WHO" in the centre of the album cover. The 22 squares depict some of the band's influences and symbols of their career and culture: The Union Jack flag A red Routemaster bus A Royal Air Force roundel Baked beans A pinball machine The band's 1979 The Kids Are Alright release advertisement poster featuring lead guitarist Pete Townshend on stage about to smash his Gibson Les Paul guitar, with the classic caption "This guitar has seconds to live."
