LOS ANGELES, March 16 (UPI) -- The upcoming album "The Who: Then & Now" features The Who's first new studio recordings since 1982 along with 18 of its biggest hits.

Scheduled to go on sale March 30, the album spans the British rock band's entire career and includes two brand-new songs.

"Real Good Looking Boy," a tribute to Elvis Presley, and "Old Red Wine" were penned by guitarist Pete Townshend and feature lead vocals by Roger Daltrey, the band's record label MCA said in a statement.

The tracks signal a return to the studio for The Who in what Townshend calls "our 'new' Everly Brothers format."

Recording over the next few months is expected to result in a forthcoming album, The Who's first since 1982. "Real Good Looking Boy" and "Old Red Wine" are glimpses into that project.

Joining Townshend and Daltrey on "Real Good Looking Boy" are most of the band members from The Who's 2002-2003 tour -- guitarist Simon Townshend (Pete's brother,) long-time Who keyboardist John "Rabbit" Bundrick, and drummer Zak Starkey -- plus bassist Greg Lake.
