Chrissie Hynde will release her new single ‘Down The Wrong Way’ on September 15. The track, which features Neil Young on guitar, is the third to be taken from Chrissie’s debut solo album ‘Stockholm’, which was released earlier this year to huge critical acclaim.
Chrissie said, “I know Neil, I’ve toured with him and he’s always been so sweet and friendly to me. But when you’re talking about one of the Gods, it doesn’t seem like something you’d do to just pick up the phone and call someone like that. But then I thought, I should do, because he’s a friend of mine. Neil came down, plugged in and played the song and everyone’s mind was blown”.
