A BBC documentary that follows Chrissie Hyndearound the globe comes to home video on April 25th.
Alone With Chrissie Hynde tracks The Pretenders' mainstay in Paris, London, New York, Nashville and her hometown of Akron, Ohio. She discusses her passion for music, painting and social issues. Unlike in many profiles of famous people, Hynde does the talking -- we'll be spared the typical parade of industry insiders.
Cameras capture sessions while the Alone album was recorded in Nashville, along with performance clips from the CD, as well as archival footage of classic tracks such as "Brass in Pocket" and "Back on the Chain Gang." As a bonus, there's a 1981 concert performance by The Pretenders' original lineup taped by German TV.
