Pretenders frontwoman's Stockholm comes in June...
It's been nearly forty years, but Chrissie Hynde is finally releasing a solo album. The Pretenders frontwoman has announced via press release that her new album Stockholm will be her solo debut and will release on June 10th.
Commenting on the album--which will feature production and guitar work from Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John--Hynde said, "I wanted to make a power pop album you could dance to – Abba meets John Lennon... I think life is serious, and you should take it seriously, but in rock n roll either have a laugh or don't come to the party... so much of rock n roll has become what I would call Glory Rock, with family values. It's the irreverence in rock that was always the turn on."
The debut single, "Dark Sunglasses," is below and releases on April 21st. The tracklisting is as follows:
"You or No One"
"Like in the Movies"
"Down the Wrong Way"
"You're the One"
"A Plan Too Far"
"In a Miracle"
"House of Cards"
"Tourniquet (Cynthia Ann)"
"Adding the Blue"
