Yesterday (February 6th) Pete Townshend posted a video and a message to fans on TheWho.com chronicling the fourth day of sessions for the new Who album. Townshend wrote in part: "We finished work on the first song, moved to the second, moved quickly through the third so now we are managing a song every day. I got to play a tamarind shaker (I discovered these seed-pods hanging from the trees in Antigua — amazing sound) and some bass harmonica on a song called 'Detour.' Many of you will know 'The Detours' was the name of The Who before they became The Who. In this context the lyric is about men needing to find new routes, new pathways, new ways to reach a decent but still honest way to approach women in our lives and our business. We need to make a 'swerve'. . . avoid the old ways. So it’s not so much an attempt to echo #MeToo as an acknowledgement that it has been one of the most exciting things to happen in our business for years." (TheWho.com)
