The Pretenders – Relentless
Relentless is the twelfth studio album by the English-American rock band the Pretenders, released on 15 September 2023 through Parlophone. It is the first Pretenders album released through Parlophone and was preceded by the lead single “Let the Sun Come In”.

Chrissie Hynde and guitarist James Walbourne wrote the songs together remotely, with Hynde saying they had “developed this method of working remotely and it seemed like we just kept on doing it for this album. This is something that we’ve honed down to an art in the last few years. He always comes up with something I wouldn’t have thought of myself”. It is the second album they have written together, after 2020’s Hate for Sale.
