The Pretenders iTunes and Holiday EP
On top of this release the band has released a digital holiday EP which features a new recording of the band's classic "2000 Miles" as well as holiday classics "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus," "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" and "Blue Christmas." The version of "Blue Christmas" will also be featured in the video game Rock Band.
The Pretenders' "Originals" release contains new recordings of songs that trace the band's entire career and were recorded with the band's lineup of Chrissie Hynde, Martin Chambers, James Walbourne, Mark Spencer, and Nick Wilkinson.
The band will tour the US for six weeks starting January 29 in Albany (Eric Heywood, the pedal steel player from the last album will be rejoining the band for the tour replacing Mark Spencer). The Pretenders Original also includes interviews with Chrissie Hynde exploring the origins of songs, and the LP Version of "Love's A Mystery" from the band's critically lauded Break Up The Concrete.
