The Pretenders are releasing a new single, “Let’s Get Lost”, featuring Chrissie Hynde and guest vocalist Neil Tennant duetting on one of the stand-out songs from The Pretenders latest album, “Alone”. The track is released as part of a double a-side single with "Gotta Wait" and you can listen to it at the link below. Chrissie Hynde invited Neil to perform on it after a conversation between the pair backstage at a Pretenders gig in Austin, Texas, during which Neil told Chrissie that the track should be her next single. Chrissie said she would release it on the condition that he sang vocals with her; subsequently, when both artists were back in London they went in to Sarm Studios where Neil added his vocals to the track. This collaboration continues a working relationship that started when Chrissie performed “Four Songs In A Minor” with the BBC Concert Orchestra at Pet Shop Boys’ Proms show at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2015. Neil Tennant commented: “I love Chrissie’s voice and I love this song. It was a pleasure to sing and it’s a thrill to be part of a duet with Chrissie.”
