Auerbach produced the veteran rock band’s latest album, ‘Alone’, which was released last month. It is The Pretenders’ tenth studio album, and their first since 2008’s ‘Break Up The Concrete’.
Joining the Chrissie Hynde-fronted band for their televised performance, Auerbach and The Pretenders then proceeded to give a stirring rendition of album cut ‘Holy Commotion’.
Watch the performance of ‘Holy Commotion’ below.
The Pretenders are set to play a one-off UK live date in 2017, with the band booked to play at London’s Royal Albert Hall on April 10 – tickets are on sale now.
While The Black Keys appear to be continuing with their hiatus – they haven’t released an album since 2014’s ‘Turn Blue’ – Auerbach has turned his hand to collaborations.
Auerbach and Cage the Elephant’s Matt Shultz joined the group in Nashville at the end of September to perform their now-regular cover of MC5‘s 1969 single ‘Kick Out The Jams’ – which was also the title of their debut album. Auerbach joined Morello on guitar duties, while Shultz delivered vocals.
