The Pretenders have shared a new single, "I Think About You Daily," featuring strings arranged by Radiohead multi-instrumentalist Jonny Greenwood.

The song is the closing track of the Pretenders' upcoming album, Relentless. Bandleader Chrissie Hynde said in a statement, "I met Jonny a couple of times, and we're obviously big fans of him because he's done some incredible music over the years. I saw him at the Phantom Thread première where the film was running on screen with a live orchestra playing. And we spoke afterward and he expressed an interest in doing something one day. I was thrilled and very surprised. He also came down to see a Valve Bone Woe show we were doing in the basement of a Pizza Express. So when we discussed the idea of getting strings on 'I Think About You Daily,' he was the first choice. Legend!"

Greenwood said, "It was a genuine honour to score strings for Chrissie. The arrangement wrote itself because of THAT voice. She's one of the greatest singers in popular music, and her continuing passion for creation was an inspiring experience from first the email to the last note of the recording."

Hear the song below. Relentless is due out September 15.
