Inbox update: The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde set to release first solo album

June 2014 will see the release of Chrissie Hynde's first-ever solo album.
It was amazing to think that Johnny Marr of The Smiths didn't release his first-ever solo album until 2013

It's even more remarkable to think that The Pretenders' Chrissie Hynde is only now set to release her first-ever solo effort.

Titled Stockholm, Hynde's album is set to land via Caroline Records on June 10, 2014.

"It's the first album with my name on it," Hynde says. "But it's not a solo album. In fact, making this album was more of a collaboration than any Pretenders album ever was."

Recorded at Ingrid Studios in Stockholm, Sweden with co-writer/guitarist Bjorn Yttling of Peter, Bjorn and John at the controls, the disc also features contributions from Neil Young, John McEnroe and Joakim Ahlund of the Caesars.

"Dark Sunglasses" is the first single from Stockholm.
