Pete Townshend celebrated his 70th birthday Tuesday with the release of the politically charged new song "Guantanamo" that will be featured on his upcoming solo compilation Truancy: The Very Best of Pete Townshend.
As evidenced by the title, the new song is about the American military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. In a statement, Townshend said: "I thought this song might never see the light of day. But now [that] President Obama has relaxed sanctions in Cuba, it is a happy sign he might go further. "
