It’s been over a quarter-of-a-century since the last time Roger Daltrey released a solo album. This Summer, The Who frontman looks to rectify that yawning gap between projects with a brand new record under his own name. Titled As Long As I Have You, Daltrey’s latest is set to hit store shelves and streaming services on June 1st. To help give his fans a taste of what they can expect, today Daltrey has shared the album’s rollicking, soulful lead single and title track.

Though it’s billed as a solo album, Daltrey’s Who bandmate Pete Townshend actually contributed guitar parts to seven different tracks. “This is a return to the very beginning, to the time before Pete [Townshend] started writing our songs, to a time when we were a teenage band playing soul music to small crowds in church halls,” Daltrey explained in a statement. “For a long time, I’ve wanted to return to the simplicity of these songs, to show people my voice, a voice they won’t have heard before. It felt like the right time. It’s where I am, looking back to that time, looking across all those years but also being here, now, in the soulful moment.”
