On December 15 American musician Chrissie Hynde will release a brand new version of The Pretenders festive hit '2000 Miles'. Originally released in 1983, this heartfelt tribute is suspended in seasonal remembrance between joy and sadness. The brand new version, produced by Bjorn Yttling (who also produced Chrissie's critically acclaimed solo album 'Stockholm'), features Hynde's remarkable vocals alongside a twinkling piano.
Of the track Chrissie said, "Last year while finishing up the album Stockholm, Bjorn Yttling and I made up this version of the Pretenders '2000 Miles'. I think it captures the mood of the season perfectly as it gets cold in Sweden, reindeer wander the streets freely and the snow was coming down! Happy Christmas!"
Chrissie also embarks on her UK tour this December. In celebration of a hugely successful year, this handful of special shows will see The Pretenders front woman play songs from her illustrious back catalogue alongside tracks from her solo album 'Stockholm'.
