Le pre-sales will open on the official circuit Ticketone (online and points of sale) at 11 a.m. on Wednesday 22 March.
While in the recording studio with Dan Auerback (Black Keys) to work on the follow-up to his solo work Stockholm (Caroline International, 2014)the band's long-time leader realised that the album that was taking shape, tentatively titled Chrissie Hynde Practices Her Autographhad all the makings of a comeback for the Pretenders. Thirty-seven years after the eponymous debut album, Alone can be considered the older, wiser and badder brother of that debut. The band, which the Hynde describes as consisting of "real people playing real instruments", hosts Johnny Cash's bass player Dave Roethe country rocker Kenny Vaughan to the chirarra and members of the Arcs, side project of Dan Auerbach: Richard Swift to the battery, Leon Michels on keyboards and Russ Pahl pedal steel guitar.
