Roger Daltrey, legendary vocalist with The Who, has exclusively signed 1,000 CD copies of his new solo album, As Long As I Have You, to help raise money for the Teenage Cancer Trust.
Daltrey is an Honorary Patron of Teenage Cancer Trust and has helped to raise millions of pounds to support young people with cancer. £5 from each signed CD sale will go directly to the trust, which provides specialised nursing and emotional support for young people with cancer. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity meeting this critical need.
As Long As I Have You was produced by Dave Eringa, best known for his work with on landmark Manic Street Preachers albums (Gold Against The Soul; Everything Must Go) and on Roger Daltrey and Wilko Johnson’s album Going Back Home. The album features Pete Townshend’s inimitable guitar on seven tracks as well as guest performances from Mick Talbot on keyboards (Dexys Midnight Runners, The Style Council) and Sean Genockey on lead guitar who has worked with Suede, Shame and The Proclaimers.
Work on As Long As I Have You was started shortly after the UK Top 5 gold-selling Going Back Home was released and continued during breaks on The Who’s record breaking 50th anniversary tour, The Who Hits 50.
The new album is a mixture of self-penned tracks such as ‘Certified Rose’ and the soulful ballad ‘Always Heading Home’ along with songs that have inspired Daltrey over the years including Nick Cave’s ‘Into My Arms’, ‘You Haven’t Done Nothing’ by Stevie Wonder, Stephen Stills’ ‘How Far’ and the title track originally recorded by Garnet Mimms in 1964; the year that Daltrey, Townshend, John Entwistle and Keith Moon changed their name from The High Numbers and became The Who.
