6 years after the last Pretenders album, during a career spanning 30 years, Chrissie Hynde is now breaking it down & keeping new and very different company with her 1st ever solo album.
'Stockholm' was recorded at Ingrid Studios, Stockholm, with co-writer, guitarist & producer Bjorn Yttling (Peter, Bjorn and John) & features cameos from Neil Young & John McEnroe. These 11 songs mix strong pop hooks with emotional & incisive lyrics. "With its taunting lyrics, "Dark Sunglasses" has the bite of some of her previous work & if "Down the Wrong Way" sounds like Ms. Hynde is fronting Crazy Horse, that's because Neil Young is wailing away on electric guitar. The chilling ballad "Tourniquet (Cynthia Ann)" finds Ms. Hynde's voice floating above a nylon-stringed guitar, celesta & organ, all played by Mr. Yttling. John Eriksson—the John in Peter Bjorn & John—provides the punch on drums in "Like in the Movies." - wall street journal
