Chrissie Hynde is Back with New Pretenders Music: Listen to New Single, “Let the Sun Come In” And You’ll Believe in Real Rock Again


Every couple of years, Chrissie Hynde resurrects the Pretenders and puts a terrific album. Her voice has never lost its silky roughness, and the production rocks, baby.

Today she announced a new album for September 1st.
The single is below, it’s called “Let the Sun Come in.” Give it a real listen. Great hooks, catchy melody, and this thing chugs.

Her last album was buried by the record label. We can only hope for better things this time. Anything new from Ms. Hynde is a dose of good meds.

I know the Grammys won’t pay attention and she doesn’t care but: Best Pop Vocal Performance, hands down. Best Rock Song. Best Rock Album.
