The Who's Roger Daltrey covers Pete Townshend

The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has re-recorded bandmate Pete Townshend’s Let My Love Open The Door to raise money for Teen Cancer America.

The two members of The Who helped found the charity in 2011 after working with Teenage Cancer Trust in the UK for a decade. The track also features in the charity’s latest advert.

Daltrey says: “Whether by downloading this track or by other means, we hope people will open their hearts and open the door to assist Teen Cancer America.

“The mission isn’t just to fight teen cancer, but to create facilities where teens and young adults can feel like they belong — to create spaces different from the spaces children and adults have. Together, with First Citizens’ help, we can bridge this gap.”

The Who are currently touring North America after they cancelled last year’s trek due to Daltrey’s health problems.

Let My Love Open The Door can be purchased on iTunes via First Citizens. Proceeds will benefit Teen Cancer America and its work to increase targeted care and specialised treatment facilities for teens and young adults with cancer.
