Morrissey records cover of The Pretenders’ ‘Back on the Chain Gang’ for future single

Morrissey has recorded a cover of The Pretenders’ 1982 single “Back on the Chain Gang” — which the former Smiths frontman has taken to playing live of late — in a Los Angeles studio and intends to release it this summer as a single, according to a post on his new Morrissey Central website.

The cover is produced by Joe Chiccarelli, who produced Moz’s last two albums, World Peace Is None of Your Business and Low in High School, and features Jesse Tobias on guitar, Solomon Walker on bass, Matthew Walker on drums and Roger Manning on keyboards.

Below, check out a live performance of “Chain Gang” from last year.
