Solo album debut from Chrissie Hynde: Stockholm

Since much of the music we're playing here on Radio Dupree is from the 1970's and we're based in Sweden it would be a bit of a miss if we didn't mention the first album from Chrissie Hynde since The Pretenders' Break Up The Concrete in 2008.

Her album is titled Stockholm because it was recorded in the Capital of Sweden.
It will be out in about a month's time. And with that we hand it over to the official press release:
Recorded at Ingrid Studios in Stockholm with co-writer, guitarist and producer Bjorn Yttling (Peter, Bjorn and John), the album features cameos from Neil Young and tennis legend John McEnroe. The album, 11 tracks in total incudes the first single ‘Dark Sunglasses’, released on April 21. Summing up her aims with the album, Chrissie said; “I wanted to make a power pop album you could dance to – Abba meets John Lennon”.

Speaking about the new album Chrissie adds, “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”.
