The Pretenders are the latest of many artists who have had to postpone an imminent album due to COVID-19. Hate For Sale was set to drop May 1st but is now scheduled for July 17th.

In a press release Chrissie Hynde said of this latest single: “We all love punk, so I think it would be fair to say that “Hate for Sale” is our tribute to the punk band I considered the most musical of the genre — The Damned.”
