The Pretenders’ first eight albums are being compiled into a self-titled box-set.

Released on February 16, the box-set takes in the band’s albums from 1979’s self-titled debut to 1999’s Viva El Amor, with a wealth of B-sides, live songs and demos across the albums alongside DVDs for each album featuring TV appearances from shows such as Top Of The Pops.

Videos for all the album’s singles are included on the bonus DVDs, taking in hits such as Brass In Pocket, I’ll Stand By You, Back On The Chain Gang, 2000 Miles and Don’t Get Me Wrong.

Each album comprises two CDs and a DVD, apart from Packed and The Isle Of View, which feature just one CD and a DVD, with the relevant B-sides as those albums’ bonus tracks.


The box-set is available to order now from, with the first 500 orders receiving a free personalised lyric poster of Brass In Pocket.
