“Indie Cindy” will be the name of The Pixies’ first full studio album since 1991’s “Trompe le Monde” and will be released in late April on the band’s own independent label, Pixiesmusic  (and marketed and distributed by [PIAS] Recordings).  Pre-orders for most configurations can be placed beginning today at iTunes, Amazon, and other online retail outlets.

“We started seriously talking about recording new music about four years ago,” said Pixies drummer David Lovering.  “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.”

The 12 cuts on “Indie Cindy“ were produced by Gil Norton, producer of the band’s classic “Doolittle”, “Bossanova”, and “Trompe le Monde” albums.  The album is comprised of “Bagboy,” the band’s first new song in more than a decade, the eight tracks from the band’s “EP-1” and “EP-2” plus the three new tunes from the just-released “EP-3” - all written by the Pixies - Black Francis/vocals, guitar; Joey Santiago/guitars; David Lovering/drums, backing vocals.

So basically all of these songs are already available, except for one song. It's just that the packaging is different.
