Chrissie Hynde played at Glastonbury in June with Paul McCartney and Nancy watching backstage. Chrissie brought Paul on stage at the end of the set.
Johnny Marr and Dave Grohl played Tattooed Love Boys with Chrissie and The Pretenders at Glastonbury. They later posed for a photograph among the flowers.
Fans including Mary Williams on Twitter said about the three-star line-up – “You might as well cancel the rest of #Glasto. Nothing can top that.
The Relentless European Tour includes the Reeperbahn outdoor Festival in Hamburg.
You can watch I Think About You Daily, featuring a strings arrangement from Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood now on YouTube.
The NME quotes Chrissie: ““I saw him at the Phantom Thread premiere [the film of which Greenwood scored] where the film was running on screen with a live orchestra playing. We spoke afterward and he expressed an interest in doing something one day,” she said.”
The ballad features shades of the Radiohead sound from Greenwood, who is a composer outside of his work with Radiohead and The Smile.
Greenwood added: “The arrangement wrote itself because of that voice. She’s one of the greatest singers in popular music, and her continuing passion for creation was an inspiring experience from first the email to the last note of the recording.”
