Pretenders

The Pretenders are to release brand new 3CD deluxe editions of their first two albums, curated by lead singer Chrissie Hynde.

Pretenders from 1979 and Pretenders II from 1981 will also be available on limited edition red and white vinyl respectively, as well as a special, numbered print based on the Brass In Pocket single cover limited to 500 copies worldwide, exclusively available on Dig!.

Both Pretenders and Pretenders II are each presented in striking 12×12 3CD deluxe sets, featuring a high-quality book with brand-new liner notes by journalist Will Hodgkinson. They also include a myriad of rare and unseen photos of the band.

Pretenders (Deluxe Edition) contains the original album remastered by Chris Thomas, alongside demos, rarities, and many live performances. These include BBC sessions on The Kid Jensen Show, and performances at the Paris Theatre, London and Paradise Theater in Boston.

Pretenders II (Deluxe Edition) also features a remastered version of the album by Chris Thomas, demos, and alternates alongside two live performances; one from Central Park, New York City in 1980, and an electric show from the Santa Monica Civic in 1981.

Both editions are out 5 November and you can pre-order now.
