Chrissie Hynde to release debut solo album ‘Stockholm’

The Pretenders frontwoman worked with Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John on the LP

Chrissie Hynde is set to release her debut solo album ‘Stockholm’ on June 9.

The Pretenders frontwoman recorded the album in Stockholm with Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John, who produced, co-wrote and played guitar on the record.

Discussing the release, Hynde commented: “I wanted to make a power pop album you could dance to – Abba meets John Lennon… I think life is serious, and you should take it seriously, but in rock n roll either have a laugh or don’t come to the party… so much of rock ‘n’ roll has become what I would call Glory Rock, with family values. It’s the irreverence in rock that was always the turn on”. Scroll down for the LP’s tracklisting.
