THE WHO announces a new version of last year’s album ‘WHO’ – Hear updated version of ‘Beads On One String’

THE WHO

On 30th October The Who are to release a new version of last year’s album ‘WHO’ featuring an updated version of Beads On One String newly remixed by Pete Townshend and acoustic tracks from the band’s only live shows of 2020.

The songs on the deluxe version of ‘WHO’ were recorded in Kingston on Valentines Day this year exactly 50 years to the day since the who’s seminal show at Leeds which became the infamous live album ‘Live At Leeds.’

The deluxe version of ‘WHO’ is preceded on 2nd October by ‘Beads On One String (Yaggerdang Remix)’ of this new version of the song Pete Townshend says “The Beads On One String remix was an adventure to try to recapture some of the subtleties of my first solo demo. I love the studio version, but this remix by Myles Clarke and myself returns to the original synthesiser demo shared with me by my co-writer Josh Hunsacker. I also play bass rather than the genius Pino Palladino (I’ve got some nerve) and we removed the real drums and returned to computer drum tracks programmed by my co-producer Myles Clarke.

We also restored Roger’s vocal track to its first incarnation which is more heartfelt. This is a gentler version of this song, less demanding perhaps, less bullying about our need to cut each other space, each on our own path. Why does it need to be more gentle than the album version? Because it must stand alone in a period when each of us is tempted to blame someone else for our troubles, maybe even God whoever we take her/him/both to be. I’m hoping it sounds less rock, and more modern indie-pop to new listeners.”
