The Pretenders have a holiday gift
Chrissie Hynde and The Pretenders are set to release a new EP. (Wow, when was the last time anyone released one of those?)
The new project is Christmas-themed and set for an iTunes-only premiere on Dec. 23. The band has recorded a new version of their classic 2000 Miles (that's the 1983 version above), but also will do their take on I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus, Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas and Blue Christmas.
More good news: The Pretenders are kicking off a six-week U.S. tour beginning Jan. 29 in Albany, N.Y. (No Florida dates, sorry). Check their official website for tour details.
