Listen to The Pretenders’ new song, Turf Accountant Daddy

The Pretenders have released a new single, Turf Accountant Daddy, the fourth single off their upcoming album Hate For Sale. It’s been released alongside a music video, created during lockdown, hence it mostly consists of archival footage. Take a look below.

It’s the fourth single from the record to be released, following on from The Buzz, You Can’t Hurt A Fool and the album’s title track. You Can’t Hurt A Fool in particular marked a departure from the Pretender’s usual fare of straightforward rock, sporting a more R&B vibe. Chrissie Hynde said of the song: “I suppose our biggest influence apart from crazy, hard-core rock and roll has been R&B. James [Walbourne] and I really grappled with this one to get in all the subtleties and nuance of an R&B classic, albeit with modern, autobiographical lyrics. The fool is me!”


Hate For Sale, which marks the first songwriting collaboration between Chrissie Hynde and guitarist James Walbourne, was originally slated for release at the beginning of this month, however due to COVID-19 it has had its release date pushed back to 17 July.

The record follows on from The Pretender’s 2016 release Alone, which marked a return to recording for the band after an eight-year break since Break Up The Concrete, which arrived in 2008.
