JP, CHRISSIE & THE FAIRGROUND BOYS
CHRISSIE HYNDE OF THE PRETENDERS
After winding up The Pretenders final tour, Hynde returned to the U.K. in need of a “coming-down-from-tour-break,” as she puts it. She and Jones met up for coffee and Hynde surprised herself by impulsively suggesting a trip to Cuba. Two weeks later — in a big suite atop the famous Hotel Nacional de Cuba overlooking Havana, surrounded by notebooks, empty rum bottles, and cigar butts — the pair wrote the bulk of Fidelity! The album tells the story of two people who fall in love but realize their future is doomed by a 30-year age gap.
“We laughed a lot about the idea of riding around Wales in a caravan amongst kids and dogs — our kids and dogs — but, of course, that could never happen, so we put all of our irrational emotions of disappointment into a tale of woe, heartbreak,and ultimately, redemption,” Hynde says.
Fidelity!, the gutsy, raw debut album from JP, Chrissie, & The Fairground Boys, is an epic love story, albeit not a conventional one. Everything you need to know about the heartbreaking, but ultimately uplifting and fruitful relationship betweenThe Pretenders leader Chrissie Hynde and Welsh singer-songwriter JP Jones iscontained within Fidelity!’s 11 songs — from passion and desire, to sadness and acceptance.
