Listen to The Pretenders ‘I’m a Mother’ from ‘Black Mirror’ Season 4, Episode 2, “Arkangel”

The wild and quite creepy The Pretenders song “I’m a Mother” showed up during the end credits of the latest episode of the British sci-fi series Black Mirror this week — Season 4, Episode 2 “Arkangel“.

“I’m a Mother” is from The Pretenders 1994 album Last of the Independents, and was the sixth studio album for the American indie rock band.

An album that mostly consisted of lead singer and guitarist Chrissie Hynde and guitarist Adam Seymour playing on each track, and backed by a revolving door of guest musicians.


Not surprisingly, Last of the Independents wasn’t the most successful album for The Pretenders, only being certified gold in France.

Listen to The Pretenders’ track “I’m a Mother” in the video below. And yes, it was quite apropos for the “Arkangel” ending.
