Roger Daltrey says that although the upcoming Who album turned out amazing -- he had some doubts about a few of Pete Townshend's new songs. Daltrey spoke to Uncut and revealed, "Pete presented me with 12 demos. And there were four, maybe five, of them, which I really didn't like. I thought it was a great Pete Townshend solo album. I told him that. And he got quite angry! He said, 'I wrote them for you!' I said, 'Pete, I don't know how I can improve it.' I couldn't see myself climbing in. I don't know why. Maybe my passion for the Who's started to disappear."

Daltrey went on to recall how he worked with Townshend to restructure key parts in the songs to make them work for him as a singer: "I said can I change the tense of that song, and move it from being an 'I' song to being inclusive? Pete said: 'Yeah.' So slowly but surely I climbed into it. I don't think anyone's ever understood, including Pete, that doing what I do with his songs is certainly not f***ing easy. You have to live them. Do I have to change the songs till I can mean them? Yes. It has to come from my heart. It can't come from my head. When it comes from my heart, I will touch you with those words. Sometimes I have to change the words to make that possible."

Daltrey, who's gone on record as saying the new set is the band's "best album since Quadrophenia," went on to say, "I have to say it's a far better Who album than it is a Pete Townshend album! I mean, I don't know what people want out of the Who any more. But the songs are fabulous. . . Townshend's always original. And that for me is everything. He's always searching."

Roger Daltrey broke down how he goes about finding his voice within Pete Townshend's new material: "It's a strange journey for me because I have to inhabit the songs. I never want to know what he's written them about, because that would be ridiculous for me. I just have to listen to them, (and) see what I can find inside the music inside me. And our chemistry is such that we very rarely work together; we work separately and piece it together, like a jigsaw puzzle. Basically, I'm singing to a demo track, and he gives me the freedom to then lay my voice on it, where I hear it making the song work. And he trusts my judgment on that, and I thank him for that freedom."
