During the recent Voodoo Music Experience New Orleans, artists stopped by the American Express® ZYNC ZONE, to chat with SPIN about their 2010 festival experiences and much more, among them Pretenders frontwoman Chrissie Hynde’s new duo with Welsh musician J.P. Jones — watch our video interview, plus performance footage below!

Hynde and Jones have combined musical forces to create a “real collaboration” that’s “not like anything I’ve ever done before,” Hynde said.

Jones recounted the two meeting in a London bar and subsequently getting together to begin writing songs.”I gave him my number and said I’m going on tour tomorrow so give me a call and he started sending me songs and I got totally blown away,” Hynde said.

The duo is going to continue touring and hitting festivals but will also produce another album next year, Jones said.
