(hennemusic) Roger Daltrey is streaming the title track to his forthcoming solo album, "As Long As I Have You", which will be released on June 1. Originally recorded by Garnet Mimms in 1964, the tune delivers a return to a vintage sound for The Who vocalist while marking his first single in 26 years.

"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," says Daltrey. "That's what we were, a soul band. And now, I can sing soul with all the experience you need to sing it. Life puts the soul in.

"I've always sung from the heart but when you're 19, you haven't had the life experience with all its emotional trials and traumas that you have by the time you get to my age. You carry all the emotional bruises of life and when you sing these songs, those emotions are in your voice. You feel the pain of a lost love. You feel it and you sing it and that's soul.

"For a long time, I've wanted to return to the simplicity of these songs," he adds, "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."

Produced by Dave Eringa, "As Long As I Have You" mixes Daltrey originals alongside covers of songs by Stevie Wonder, Stephen Stills and Nick Cave. Read more and stream the song here.
