Pretenders Return With First Album In 6 Years
Weekly MP3 Available Leading To 9/23 Release
One of rock's seminal bands, THE PRETENDERS will return with their first album in six years on SEPTEMBER 23rd via SHANGRI-LA MUSIC. THE PRETENDERS’ ninth album titled, "Break Up The Concrete," has CHRISSIE HYNDE collaborating with a new group of musicians. It was recorded in 10 days; the result is a stripped-down roots album, pure and raw, which highlights HYNDE's timeless vocal sound.
