Pete Townshend’s Accurate Apocalyptic Predictions To Be Featured In The Who’s Upcoming Release

The Who announced the release of their extensive compilation of Who’s Next/Life House box set, scheduled to drop on September 15. The box set will include a graphic novel based on the ‘Life House’ album, 155 tracks, of which 89 have never been released, and 57 include new remixes.

This set also includes a collection of songs where the guitarist Pete Townshend predicted the creation of the internet, portrayed the rise of virtual reality, and depicted a lockdown similar to a pandemic. The songs are planned to captivate a new audience with ‘his visionary description of a future that has, in many ways, come true.’

The team behind the box set includes Harvey Max Prenti, James Harvey, David Hine, Micha Myers, and Mick Gray, all working under the supervision of Townshend.

In an interview with Far Out in 2019, Townshend revealed his thoughts on the project:

“A graphic novel based on my very first 1970 concept for The Who’s abandoned Lifehouse project is perhaps the most exciting creative development in my long career.”

The project will be available as limited edition sets of 4 and 3 LPs, including the 1971 San Francisco concert.
