Chrissie Hynde stumbled upon the idea for a new Pretender’s record whilst recording solo material with Dan Auerbach from the black keys – after realising the strength of the material and how it might translate to the band, the decision to reboot it was obvious.

Thirty-six years after The Pretenders’ first album, ‘Alone’ could be the older, wiser, badder sister to their exhilarating debut. The team, approvingly described by Hynde as “real people playing real instruments,” features Johnny Cash’s former bass player Dave Roe and country rocker Kenny Vaughan on guitar plus sundry members Auerbach’s side project The Arcs.
