The Pretenders: Chrissie Gets Jazzy

Chrissie Hynde is taking a break from The Pretenders this year for a solo album and tour.

The album, Valve Bone Woe, is due out in the late spring and it’s a “jazz-dub” project that has her covering songs by the likes of The Beach Boys, Nick Drake, Ray Davies and more.

Hynde will play some shows in support of it, and the first once announced has her backed by an orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl on July 6th. The show will feature selections from the new album, as well as Pretenders songs re-arranged for an orchestra.
