OTHER WORLDS collates striking acoustic renditions of some of the band’s personal favourites featuring some very special guests. The recording of Elvis Costello’s (What’s So Funny ‘Bout) Peace, Love And Understanding served as 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.

Since 2008 THE PRETTY RECKLESS have given rock n roll the jumpstart it needed for a new generation and 2021’s Death By Rock N Roll elevated them further to rarefied air. With its impact, the band carved out a place in history as the first female-fronted band to have seven #1 singles on the Billboard Rock Chart. Beyond acclaim in the USA from V Magazine, The Today Show, People, Spin, Elle, American Songwriter, Bustle, ABC News Nightline, The Daily Beast and more, the album also debuted at #1 on the Billboard Album 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 rule book out of the window; they set it on fire on the way down. Introducing a bold vision unlike anything 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 on stage to bring the danger back to rock n roll. By sticking to their guns, they 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, entering new territory once more.
“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 or 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.”
“You get to hear a different side of Taylor’s vocals,” adds Ben 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 that good.”
