Ball and Chain
by The Who
From their upcoming twelfth studio album by the English rock band The Who, due to be released on 22 November 2019.

The album cover was designed by pop artist Peter Blake whose work includes the band's Face Dances and the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album covers. It is a patchwork of 25 squares: 22 ones showing different colored images placed around 3 ones forming the word "WHO" in the centre of the album cover. The 22 squares depict some of the band's influences and symbols of their career and culture: the Union Jack flag, a red Imperial bus, a Royal Air Force roundel, tomato beans (a reminiscence of the band's own 1967 The Who Sell Out album cover); a pinball machine (a reminiscence of the band's own 1969 track "Pinball Wizard"); the band's 1979 The Kids Are Alright release advertisement poster featuring lead guitarist Pete Townshend on stage about to smash his Gibson Les Paul guitar, with the classic caption "This guitar has seconds to live.";[5] a scooter (a nod to the mod culture and therefore, a reminiscence of the band's own 1973 Quadrophenia album cover); the band's 1981 Face Dances cassette edition album cover;[6] comic book characters Batman and Robin; cultural figures such as musician Chuck Berry, boxer Muhammad Ali. One of the colored squares reads "Detour", the title of the fourth track of the album: this may be seen as a nod to the Detours, the name of the earlier group from which the Who originated. One may interpret the "WHO" word as the band's name and "Detour" as the "real" album title since the band's name does not appear anywhere in the album cover.
