The last time the Pixies released an album, it was 1991. But on April 29, more than two decades since Trompe Le Monde blew out stereo speakers, the alternative rock pioneers will drop Indie Cindy on the masses.
The new album is comprised of EP-1, EP-2 and EP-3, all of which were released in the past year. In addition, the recent track “Bagboy” is included in the collection. For Indie Cindy, the trio of Black Francis, Joey Santiago and David Lovering was aided by bassist Simon “Ding” Archer.
“We started seriously talking about recording new music about four years ago,” Lovering said in a statement. “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.”
