Pixies preview new album with ‘Talent’

The track follows ‘Um Chagga Lagga’ in leading up to ‘Head Carrier’.

Pixies will release their new album ‘Head Carrier’ - the first with new bassist Paz Lenchantin - on 30th September, and have shared its second track.

‘Talent’ follows ‘Um Chagga Lagga’ in previewing the follow-up to 2014 compilation ‘Indie Cindy’, and again sees the band revitalised.

Tracks from ‘Head Carrier’ were previewed live at Lisbon’s NOS Alive festival last month, and you can watch footage of the new songs here.

In addition to this news, the band have also announced they’re to play Brixton Academy - again - at the end of the year. It comes after a London date at..Brixton Academy back in July, and two (whisper it) Brixton Academy dates in November. Catch the Pixies at Brixton Academy this year, 2016.
