The Pretenders leader Chrissie Hynde has a recording career that has lasted longer than many of us have been alive, but she has never released a solo album until now. Hynde’s solo debut is called Stockholm, and it’s really a full-length collaboration with her Swedish producer and co-writer, Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn And John. She’s already shared first single “Dark Sunglasses,” and now there’s another one, “You Or No One,” that boasts Hynde’s inimitably smoky vocals but honestly sounds more like Swedish indie-pop than like anything the Pretenders have ever done. And that’s kind of the idea, I guess? Listen below.
Stockholm is out 6/10 on Caroline.
