THE PRETTY RECKLESS are proud to announce the release of “Other Worlds“, a new collection of material which will be released on November 4th, 2022.
Since 2008, THE PRETTY RECKLESS have given rock ‘n’ roll the jumpstart it needed for a new generation. 2021’s Death By Rock and Roll elevated them to rarified air.
With its impact, the four-piece carved out a place in history as the first female-fronted band to have back-to-back No. 1 singles at the active rock format and the first female-fronted act to have seven No. 1 singles on the Billboard Rock Radio Chart. Beyond acclaim from V Magazine, The TODAY Show, PEOPLE, Spin, ELLE, American Songwriter, Bustle, ABC News Nightline, The Daily Beast, and more, it bowed at #1 on the Billboard Top Album Sales Chart.
It also notably boasted collaborations with legends such as Soundgarden’s Matt Cameron and Kim Thayil on “Only Love Can Save Me Now” and Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello on “And So It Went.”
Through and through, THE PRETTY RECKLESS didn’t simply throw the rulebook out the window; they set the fucker on fire on the way down. Introducing a bold vision unlike anything else this era had seen, Momsen’s bluesy seductive howl collided with revved-up and raucous rhythms, sweetly stoned melodies, and enough unpredictability in the studio and onstage to bring the danger back to rock ‘n’ roll. By sticking to their guns, the musicians reaped the rewards of such uncompromising fearlessness.
This boundlessness drives Other Worlds, where they deliver their first proper acoustic recordings, unexpected covers, and other reimaginings, covering new territory once more.
“For a long time, we’ve been trying to figure out an alternative way of releasing music, including songs we love that didn’t make our records, covers, and alternate versions,” explains Momsen.
“We found a way to do this coherently and consistently with Other Worlds. We’re a rock band, so there are lots of electric guitars on our records. However, we’ve gotten incredible feedback from fans about our acoustic performances, and we’d never put those out in any real format. So, this is a different take on the traditional format of a record and a stripped back version of us that our fans haven’t really heard before, but it’s still us.”
“You get to hear a different side of Taylor’s vocals,” adds Phillips. “It was a chance for us to see what she would sound like singing songs by people who have inspired us. It also gave us some perspective of where we need to go and what we need to be if we want to be that good.”
The record collates striking acoustic renditions of personal favorites accompanied by some very special guests. The recording of Elvis Costello’s “(What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding” served as Momsen’s first cover originally performed for the Fearless at Home livestream in the midst of COVID.
As another pandemic-era cover, Matt Cameron played guitar and sang as Taylor powered an airy and lithe reimagining of Soundgarden’s “Halfway There” from King Animal, generating hundreds of thousands of views on its initial post. Iconic multi-instrumentalist, producer, and artist Alain Johannes handled guitar on The Pretty Reckless’ pensive and poetic interpretation of “The Keeper,” originally by Chris Cornell, while David Bowie pianist Mike Garson performed a stirring piano movement for The Thin White Duke’s “Quicksand.”
“Other Worlds” will be available as Ltd. CD Edition, black LP and digital album and can be pre-ordered HERE: https://tpr.lnk.to/OtherWorlds
