The Pretenders’ latest single, “You Can’t Hurt a Fool” is a slinky and soulful ballad in which Chrissie Hynde sings about a woman commanding the room with diva like qualities. The timeless sounding track comes from the band’s brand-new album, Hate For Sale which was released on Friday (17th July). A nostalgic music video sets the scene with reflections of heroine’s dancing in the shiny silver chrome of a vintage ribbon microphone.  Watch below.

Hynde co-wrote all ten tracks on the new album with Pretenders’ guitarist, James Walbourne. “I wanted to write with [Walbourne] since day one,” Hynde said in a statement. “James is especially sought after and has recorded with Jerry Lee Lewis, Dave Gahan and the Rails, to name but a few. We always planned on writing while on the road, but as anyone in a band will tell you, being on tour is a procrastinator’s dream come true.” 

They’ve previously teased the record with singles “The Buzz” and “Hate for Sale,” which bring Hynde’s potent punk roots back to the surface. Check out the music videos, created in lockdown below.
