The Pretenders also rocked the Glastonbury stage with a surprise set earlier this Summer. More on that here.
“most traditionally Pretenders sounding song”
Speaking the band’s latest tune, The Pretenders’ lead singer Chrissie Hynde has also explained how that ‘A Love’ is a throwback to some of the band’s classic tracks in a press release.
“I suppose ‘A Love’ is the most traditionally Pretenders-sounding song on the album, in the vein of ‘Kid’ or ‘Talk of the Town’ or any of the midtempo ones over the years”, Hynde explained.
She also added, “I suppose ‘A Love’ is the most traditionally Pretenders-sounding song on the album, in the vein of ‘Kid’ or ‘Talk of the Town’ or any of the midtempo ones over the years”.
Speaking about the title of the band’s forthcoming album, Hynde said that she loves the different meanings the word ‘Relentless’ can take.
“I enjoy seeing the various meanings and origins of a word”, she also stated. “And I liked the definition: ‘Showing no abatement of intensity.’ It’s the life of the artist. You never retire. You become relentless”.
Elsewhere, the Pretenders will also perform a range of shows with Guns N’Roses next month, along with some headlining shows in the US.

The Pretenders also performed several intimate UK shows earlier this year. Shows also included Brighton, Manchester, Bristol and London.
