Listen to the Pixies’ New Song ‘Talent’
The new Pixies record, Head Carrier, has added another song to its list of pre-release singles with "Talent."
The new track, available as an instant download for fans who pre-order the record, arrives a little more than a month after the band announced Head Carrier's Sept. 30 arrival — and released the set's first single, "Um Chagga Lagga," which you can listen to here.
As previously reported, Carrier serves as the second Pixies full-length since the band reunited in 2004 after more than a decade apart. Like the group's last LP, 2014's Indie Cindy, it was recorded without the involvement of ex-bassist Kim Deal, who departed the lineup in 2013 and has since been replaced by A Perfect Circle and Zwan vet Paz Lenchantin. The sessions were helmed by producer Tom Dalgety, who's compared it to their 1989 Doolittle album and said, "It’s got a bit of early Pixies slosh in it."
Pixies are scheduled to support Head Carrier with a European tour that's set to start Nov. 15 in Austria and continue through early December in Britain. Take a look at the complete list of currently announced dates below, and visit the band's official site for ticketing information.
