The Pretender is a song written and performed by American rock performer Jackson Browne and featured on his 1976 album The Pretender. The Pretender was composed, according to Browne, in a number of locations in Los Angeles, within a rented store-front in North Hollywood, and in a tacky hotel in Hawaii. Browne is quoted to have claimed that the song was almost complete before he had discovered the defining opening piano-riff. On The Pretender, Jackson Browne took a step back from the precipice so well defined on his first three albums, but doing so didn't seem to make him feel any better. Employing a real producer, Jon Landau, for the first time, Browne. The man who had delved so deeply into life's abyss on his earlier albums was in search of escape this time around, whether by crying Here Come Those Tears Again, sleeping Sleep's Dark and Silent Gate, or making peace with estranged love ones The Only Child, Daddy's Tune.
