"As Londoners, it’s very surreal to be immortalised in stone on Camden High Street," said Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey in a statement.
"I felt that The Who ought to make, if you like, a last album," Pete Townshend told the NME of the new release.
In November 1980, the Who guitarist and writer made his third solo entry of the year on the Hot 100.
The four titles in the collection are 1985's She's The Boss, Primitive Cool (1987), Wandering Spirit (1993) and Goddess In The Doorway (2001).
'The Who By Numbers' was a more conventional studio album after the panoramic ambition of 1973’s 'Quadrophenia,' but far from average.
The Who’s rock musical ’Tommy’ is returning to Broadway, 26 years after the show’s run ended, with original director Des McAnuff leading the new production.
Pete Townshend worked on the song, originally as a slow blues, all through the summer of 1965, as The Who toured Scandinavia and Holland.
Just nine months after Steppenwolf’s gold-selling, self-titled debut, the Los Angeles rockers were back on the US album chart.
Pete Townshend says the track “is dedicated to every artist who has ever been accused of ripping off someone else’s song."
Titles by artists including PiL, Arctic Monkeys, The Specials, T-Rex and Coldplay will also be going under the hammer.
How many weeks have The Who spent at No. 1 on the UK album chart? Precisely one, with 'Who's Next.'
While unveiling the artwork and tracklist for 'WHO,' the band also shared the first song from it, along with UK arena shows for 2020.
In September 1979, the band played their first US concerts with Kenney Jones behind the drumkit.
Pete Townshend has also revealed that, with their forthcoming album now completed, he doesn't see an end in sight for The Who.
'Who Are You' hit the Hot 100 on 26 August 1978 on its way to becoming the band’s biggest American hit for eight years.
