The Who frontman Roger Daltrey has revealed that he and Paul Weller are planning a future collaboration.

The singer, who was speaking to NME in a video which you can see by scrolling up to the top of the page and clicking, responded to a question about if he had any current recording plans by saying: "Paul Weller's been talking about an idea that he's been working on, which I'd love him to do. I've been very bad at finding material and he's got this idea and he's always said to me, 'Why don't you sing more?' and I always say, 'Find me some material'. So we'll see if we can come up with something."

Daltrey also spoke about The Who's chances of touring again, saying: "It's five years on since we last toured heavily, it's only just over a year since we last played together."

He continued: "Equally, I'm not the same as I was five years ago, things need to move on and change and you need to reinvent things. It all depends on whether it feels right."

The singer was speaking ahead of the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs which are currently ongoing. Daltrey is patron of the charity and is actively involved in organising the gigs.

The Concerts for Teenage Cancer Trust gigs are currently taking place at London's Royal Albert Hall. Paul McCartney headlines the venue tonight (March 29), with Example and Pulp playing the following days.

The line up for the Teenage Cancer Trust gigs is as follows:

Paul McCartney (29)
Example (30)
Pulp (31)
Professor Green and Jessie J (April 1)
Comedy evening with Jason Manford and special guests (2)
Florence And The Machine (3)
