The Pretty Reckless ‘Other Worlds’ out now

THE PRETTY RECKLESS – Taylor Momsen (vocals and guitar) Ben Phillips (guitar, keyboards and piano) Mark Damon (bass) and Jamie Perkins (drums) – have released their new album, OTHER WORLDS, a collection of new material via Century Media Records.

OTHER WORLDS collates striking acoustic renditions of some of the band’s own favourites featuring special guests. The recording of Elvis Costello’s (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding was Taylor 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 reimaging of Soundgarden’s Halfway There, generating hundreds of thousands of views on its initial post. Iconic multi-instrumentalist, producer and artist Alan Johannes handled guitar on the band’s pensive and poetic interpretation of The Keeper, originally by Chris Cornell, while David Bowie pianist Mike Garson performed a stirring piano movement for Quicksand from The Thin White Duke.

For a long time, we’ve been trying to figure out an alternative way of releasing music, including songs that we love that didn’t make our records,” 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 had incredible feedback from our fans about our acoustic performances, and we had 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.”
