The Pretenders have teamed up with Radiohead‘s Jonny Greenwood for their new song, “I Think About You Daily,” the second single from their upcoming album, Relentless.
“Things that got away,” Chrissie Hydne sings. “I treated you real bad/ Now each morning when I wake up/ It’s you that’s on my mind.”
In a statement, Hynde revealed that the band are “big fans” of Greenwood.
“I saw him at the Phantom Thread première where the film was running on screen with a live orchestra playing. We spoke afterward and he expressed an interest in doing something one day,” Hydne said. “I was thrilled and very surprised. So when we discussed the idea of getting strings on ‘I Think About You Daily,’ he was the first choice. Legend!”
“The arrangement wrote itself because of THAT voice,” Greenwood said of Hynde. “She’s one of the greatest singers in popular music, and her continuing passion for creation was an inspiring experience from first the email to the last note of the recording.”
Relentless is due out September 15th via Rhino and also features the lead single, “Let the Sun Come In.”
