Song of the Day: Pretenders – “Blue Eyed Sky”

The new album Alone from The Pretenders is out now and is getting generally positive feedback so far. The album has some hard-rocking material and some that is more laid back, like this track. As far as the album’s title, it comes from a discussion Chrissie Hynde had with producer Dan Auerbach in the studio. “I said I do everything alone, I go to the cinema alone, I go to restaurants alone, I hang out alone, I live alone,” Hynde said, per “Dan said write a song about it. Twenty minutes before my cab was coming, I was going back to London and he said ‘Sing over this,’ I just pulled out some lyrics and it was the title track. It’s kind of rough it’s like a spoken word kind of thing and we were laughing and If you’re laughing it’s Rock ‘N Roll, that’s why it’s the title track.”
