Roger Daltrey says that he would like to play a more active role behind the scenes for the next Who album. The band's latest album -- and first in 13 long years -- is titled WHO, and currently sits at Number Two on the Billboard 200 albums chart -- marking the group's biggest hit in 41 years.

Daltrey, who admittedly had a tough time absorbing the new music, told us that he would like to take a more hands on approach to how Pete Townshend crafts the songs for the band: "I'll work with Pete any time, but I would like to do an album where we work together. Not necessarily in the studio together, but, the project. And it seems to me that Pete cooks up projects on his own that are narratively tricky for the general public to get into, and I think if we work together, and by workin' together some of those problems might be solved."

Daltrey shed light on how he takes Townshend's songs and reshapes them into the final record: "Pete always gives me loads of freedom to change the melody, which I arrange to suit myself. (The song) 'I Don't Wanna Get Wise,' for instance, that song originally in the demo that Pete had done, everything was in the 'I' -- 'I was this, I was that. . . ' To me, that just kinda made me wanna turn the bloody thing off, 'cause it was all, like I say, 'singin at me. And I thought, but if I change the tenses of this, and make it about the 'we,' about the 'us,' it will widen the vibe of the thing, and I think it has -- enormously."
