Pretenders II (2022 reissue)

  • lp

    Released: 22nd Apr 2022


In 1981, Pretenders followed up their massive eponymous debut album with Pretenders II.

The last album with Pretenders’ original line-up, the band continued the tremendous form of their debut album. This pressing of Pretenders features 2018 remastered audio by the album’s original producer, Chris Thomas, and is on vinyl for the first time. Following their debut album, Pretenders released two singles in the UK, Talk Of The Town and Message Of Love before Pretenders II arrived, with the former reaching #8 and the latter #11 in the UK singles charts. The appetite in the US maintained too, with Pretenders releasing an EP in the interim named “Extended Play”, containing five tracks that would later be on the Pretenders II album. With a clamouring for more Pretenders material, Pretenders II was released on 15th August 1981 to great fanfare. The album would end up peaking #7 in the UK, and #10 in the US, being certified Silver and Gold respectively in the process. Further highlights of the album include another cover of The Kinks, in the form of I Go To Sleep.
