2019 CD release.
The album features reinterpretations of classic material penned by Brian Wilson, Frank Sinatra, Hoagy Carmichael, Charlie Mingus, John Coltrane, Nick Drake, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and Hynde's former partner Ray Davies.
The record was seemingly inspired by pre-war jazz sounds, and was recorded with the Valve Bone Woe Ensemble at London's AIR Studios.
"I’m not hugely interested in branching out into other musical genres, being a devout rock singer as such, but jazz is something I grew up around (thanks to my bro) and I’ve always had a soft spot for it. I often bemoan what I regard as a decline in melody in popular music and I wanted to sing melodies".
