Pixies announce ‘Indie Cindy’ album — first new full-length since 1991’s ‘Trompe le Monde’

The Pixies today announced the release of the third in their series of self-released vinyl-and-digital EPs over the last seven months, and now will compile all 12 new songs released since last summer’s “Bagboy” digital single as a full-length album titled Indie Cindy that will make the band’s new music available on CD for the first time.

The new EP3 will once again be released on limited-edition 10-inch vinyl (that comes with an instant lossless audio download), and includes the aforementioned “Bagboy,” plus previously unreleased new songs “Silver Snail,” “Ring the Bells” and “Jamie Bravo.”

Fans also can now pre-order Indie Cindy, a compilation of the 2013-2014 EPs, as either a 2CD set packaged with a 40-page hardback book or a 180-gram gatefold double-vinyl album. Both options come with the instant lossless download of EP3, while the CD package includes the full album on one CD plus a live 13-track CD recorded on the band’s North American tour earlier this year.

The 12 songs Indie Cindy were produced by Gil Norton, who handled Doolittle, Bossanova, and Trompe le Monde, and were recorded in October 2012 at Rockfield Studios in Wales, UK.

The CDs and vinyl, all with Vaughan Oliver artwork, ship on April 28.

That live disc will feature new bassist Paz Lenchantin, who came on board this year following the band’s European tour last fall with bassist Kim Shattuck. Kim Deal, the band’s original bassist and co-founder, left the Pixies last year, and is not featured on any of the new recordings.

The new EP and full album can be ordered now at pixiesmusic.com. The album will also be released as a standard single-disc CD and download to regular retailers and online outlets, and iTunes will also carry an expanded download version with the 12-track live set.

    How many bassists does it take to complete a Pixies album?

    Give up? Yeah, I don’t know either. What was the last count?

  3. I have looked everywhere for the digital copy, but can only find it if you buy the $18 record. Seriously!!? Has anyone found just the digital copy for sale?

  4. For pre-order, anyway, with a release date in late April. But the new EP3 songs are available now.

  5. I must be blind, because I don’t see EP3 on iTunes. I see EP1 and EP2, along with all of their albums.

    • It is confusing. Two versions of the ‘Indie Cindy’ album are listed on iTunes, one with the extra live album and one without. Both are now only available for preorder as albums, but the new EP3 songs — ‘Silver Snail,’ ‘Jaime Bravo’ and ‘Ring the Bells’ — within those albums are now available as individual downloads. Plus ‘Bagboy,’ which is the fourth EP3 song but which you probably already have.

      Whilst I’m here, I will say the iTunes version of ‘Indie Cindy plus extra live songs’ album is wildly overpriced at $27.99. There are already a million live versions of most of the old songs floating around, and only a couple appear as live versions for the first time. The pricing is disappointing, esp. since the band only charges $3.99 for whole concerts on its website.

  6. Thanks! That clears it up.

  7. Did you see iTunes lowered the price of the expanded album. Being a fan that purchased each EP upon release, I don’t like being forced to pay for an album I already have to get the live songs. I would pay a few bucks for the live addition, but not $13.99
