Last month Pretenders legend Chrissie Hynde released “Dark Sunglasses,” the first single from her Björn-Yttling-produced solo album Stockholm. Today, we present the video. In contrast to the song’s narrative about wearing dark sunglasses as a way to hold on to high-class life after getting knocked back down to earth a la Cate Blanchett in Blue Jasmine, director Steve Glashier rolled through Austin documenting everyday people rocking dark specs. It’s a good look for a great song, and you can watch it below.

Stockholm is out 6/10 on Caroline.
