The Pretenders‘ Chrissie Hynde has released a cover of The Kinks‘ 1967 song “No Return” from her upcoming album, Valve Bone Woe.
Hynde said “No Return” was chosen by the album’s producer, Marius de Vries.
“No Return” was written by Kinks frontman Ray Davies, who is the father of Hynde’s daughter, Natalie.
Hynde told Billboard it never occurred to her to run her version of the track by Davies
“I can only imagine any songwriter’s happy when someone covers their song — why shouldn’t they be? Even if it’s bad, they’re still covering your song,” she said.
The 14-track Valve Bone Woe includes songs by the Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Nancy Wilson, Charles Mingus and Johnny Mathis.
