Pete Townshend has blogged about his next musical project, which he says is called 'Floss'.

He also confirmed that The Who are working on a new album for release in 2010.

Townshend took to Thewho.com to blog about what he's been up to, and explained that 'Floss', which he intends to be a musical, is similar in style to his classic rock operas 'Tommy' and 'Quadrophenia'.

he added: "In this case the songs are interspersed with surround-sound 'soundscapes' featuring complex sound-effects and musical montages. 'Floss' will be a son-et-lumiére musical piece, intended for outdoor performance, or arenas."

Blogging about the new Who record, he wrote: "Several of the more conventional songs from 'Floss' will be featured on a forthcoming Who recording for release in 2010."

The album will be the follow-up to 2006's 'Endless Wire'.

The musical is about the difficult relationship between a pub-rock musician who suddenly finds wealth and his wife. It will be heard in concert for the first time in 2011, according to Townshend, who added that he is "already having talks with producers in New York".

Townshend also spoke of Who frontman Roger Daltrey, who is set to tour the US solo this October.

He said: "While Roger Daltrey exercises his ageing vocal chords by embarking on a two-month Use It Or Lose It solo tour, my focus is on 'Floss', which touches on the current issues faced by the Baby Boomer generation.

Townshend added that the musical has personal connotations with his own life.

"As a 19-20 year old, with 'My Generation', I wrote the most explicitly ageist song in rock. At 64, I now want to take on ageing and mortality, using the powerfully angry context of rock 'n' roll."

One problem with Floss being like Quadrophenia or Tommy. It will not have John Entwistle, Keith Moon or the great Roger Daltrey on it. Thus it will probably be more like "Iron Man"

I am going to be bold, go out on a limb and predict that this album - at best - will totally SUCK!

... unfortunately, the reality is that it will probably be only utterly forgettable and not even warrant the passions/disappointment or most of all notice of "totally SUCK!"

I agree with this. I loved most of that album.

Also... to me, if they call it The Who, it's the Who whether we like it or not.

I mean I know people who hate the Who starting with Tommy, said they became too serious. They weren't the Who anymore. And I'm sure there's people who thought the Who weren't the Who after MY GENERATION when they stopped doing R&B. LOL

Hey Pete, how about just playing some good old rock and roll, and stay away from the opera/concept stuff. I thik you are pretty good at that.

I strongly disagree with this statement.

Saw the Who at the Isle of White recently on Paladia and holy CRAP was it bad-ass.

Moon, Townsend and Entwistle were locked in so fierce it wasn't fair. Greatest pure rock and roll band ever, right there and then.
