Pretenders’ Announce Deluxe Edition Reissues of First Two Albums

Posted 23 Sep 2021

Pretenders is widely regarded as one of the greatest debut albums of all time. Featuring Chrissie Hynde’s incredible vocals and guitar, James Honeyman-Scott’s glistening guitar, Pete Farndon’s driving bass and Martin Chambers’ drums, the album is quintessential new wave, and a defining album of the 80s.

In 1981, Pretenders followed up their massive eponymous debut album with Pretenders II. The last album with Pretenders’ original line-up, the band continued the tremendous form of their debut album.

Now, the Pretenders’ first two albums are being released in deluxe editions personally curated by bandleader Chrissie Hynde. The sets will arrive on Nov 5th. Pre-order, here. 

Pretenders (Deluxe Edition) and Pretenders II (Deluxe Edition) will be available as a 3CD set, or on limited-edition coloured red and white vinyl respectively. Both feature 2018 remastered audio by the album’s original producer, Chris Thomas, plus a special, hand-numbered Pretenders print, based upon the Brass In Pocket single artwork, limited to 500 copies worldwide.

Pretenders (Deluxe Edition) arrives with demos, rarities and live performances from the era recorded at the Paris Theatre, London and the Paradise Theater in Boston.

Pretenders II (Deluxe Edition) also features demos and more live performances, one from Central Park in 1980 and another from the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium in 1981.

Both the 3CD and vinyl sets are presented in a 12x12 book featuring a myriad of rare, unseen photos plus brand-new liner notes from acclaimed music journalist Will Hodgkinson.

Pretenders (Deluxe Edition) and Pretenders II (Deluxe Edition) are available separately, or together in the Pretenders Ultimate Bundle. Check out the bundles below, pre-order, here.
