News 15/04/2020

English-American rock band, The Pretenders, has shared a new song with a slow-burning R&B track called 'You Can't Hurt a Fool'.

Pretenders frontwoman, Chrissie Hynde explained that their biggest influence "apart from crazy, hardcore rock 'n' roll' was rhythm and blues, more commonly known as R&B.

"[Guitarist James Walbourne] and I really grappled with this one to get in all the subtleties and nuance of an R&B classic, albeit with modern, autobiographical lyrics. …The fool is me!"

Listen to their new song below.

The song was released to tease the band's upcoming album, Hate For Sale, which is due to hit stores on 17th July 2020. It also marks the first full-length songwriting collaboration between the Hynde and Walbourne and the band's first release since their 2016 Alone.

The band had also previously shared two songs titled 'The Buzz' and the LP title track, 'Hate For Sale'. Listen to them below.
