The Pixies Announce New Full-Length Album – Their First in Over Two Decades
Listeners have wondered when the Pixies would finally follow up their 1991 album Trompe Le Monde. After it looked like the band called it quits, they started releasing new material a few years ago, and during that process, recorded an album.
Announced this week, Indie Cindy is the result, and is expected to include material from their last three EPs, EP-1, EP-2, and EP-3, as well as comeback single “Bagboy.”
For those in North America, the release drops on April 29 on their own label Pixiemusic.
However, the reunion and recording process didn’t go as smoothly as expected. Reports claim Kim Deal, the band’s line-time bassist, left just six days into recording the new album. The remaining members, instead, worked with producer Gil Norton.
About the new music, drummer David Lovering told the press: “We started seriously talking about recording new music about four years ago. New music seemed like something we just had to do, we just couldn’t continue to go out and tour without anything new. So the talk evolved into writing and recording, and we’re all very happy with the way everything worked out.”
Replacing Deal, for now, is Paz Lenchantin.
Indie Cindy will come out in multiple formats: standard CD, gatefold vinyl, and an extended digital download with 13 tracks from a live show. Additionally, a limited-edition two-disc gatefold vinyl will come out for Record Store Day.
