Pretenders build up ‘The Buzz’ ahead of new album on new single


Pretenders have shared ‘The Buzz’, the first new music from their brand-new album Hate For Sale, set for release on May 1 via BMG.

The album is the first to be recorded with the now long-standing touring lineup of the group.

Speaking about ‘The Buzz’, Chrissie Hynde said: “I think we all know that love affairs can take on the characteristics of drug addiction. It’s about that. Not mine of course – I’m never obsessive never obsessive never obsessive”

Produced by the revered Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) Hate For Sale is the Pretenders’ eleventh studio album and the first to be written collaboratively by Chrissie Hynde and electrifyingly dynamic guitarist James Walbourne. Speaking about writing with James for the first time, Chrissie added:“I wanted to write with him since day one.

“James is especially sought after and has recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis, Dave Gahan, and The Rails, to name but a few. We always planned on writing while on the road, but as anyone in a band will tell you, being on tour is a procrastinator’s dream come true.”

Pretenders most recent album, 2016’s Alone, was a critical success and a welcome return for the line-up, coming eight years after 2008’s Break Up The Concrete.

The band supported Fleetwood Mac on their UK stadium tour in June 2019, which included two shows at Wembley Stadium.
