The phrase “Those who cannot do…teach” certainly does not apply to musician-turned-producer Dan Auerbach. In the throws of a summer tour with his Black Keys‘ side-project The Arcs, he sat in the big chair to produce Alone The Pretenders‘ first record in 8 years! We’ll have the record in its entirety on October 21. If you’d like to pre-order, you can download the first single, “Holy Commotion,” right away.

Oh, The Pretenders are on the road with Stevie Nicks and make a stop at United Center on December 3.  Scoop up tickets at
