(Listen) The Pretenders New Single “Holy Commotion” Prepares for New Album in October


Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders have a new single out since Friday. It’s a secret release. LOL. “Holy Commotion” is the preface to a new album called “Alone” coming October 21st. The whole thing is being done silently. You gotta laugh. The record companies don’t have any idea how to market anything. I found this by accident. They just make no effort to promote legacy or older acts, radio won’t play them, the labels just don’t do anything. Then the acts are upset that they’re making great records and all the radio stations will do is play their hits from 20 years ago. Anyway, I could listen to Chrissie Hynde sing the phone book. Luckily, this song is better than that:
