Down The Wrong Way

Album: Stockholm (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • This song features a guitar cameo from Hynde's friend Neil Young. His contribution was recorded in London in the summer of 2013 when Young was in town playing the O2 with Crazy Horse.
  • Hynde told Mojo magazine that she is a longtime fan of Young. "He listened to it a couple of times and played it and left and we were all fighting for the plectrum that he left on the desk," she said. "Which I got. A fair cop. I was the first one to reach it."
