Back in 2014, the reunited Pixies released Indie Cindy, their first album of new material since 1991's Trompe Le Monde. Now, a followup is on the way. The 12-track LP Head Carrier, unlike Indie Cindy, was conceived as a full album. The band recorded the album at RAK in London with producer Tom Dalgety. Since 2013, the band have been performing without bassist Kim Deal. She was replaced by Kim Shattuck of the Muffs, who was fired just a few months later. Paz Lenchantin of A Perfect Circle, Zwan, and the Entrance Band is now the band's official bassist.

''I was very nervous in the beginning when I went to that first rehearsal,'' she said in a press release. ''There were these shoes I felt I had to fill and I tried to do the best I could for the fans, to make the live performances sound true to the originals. I spent three years learning to understand what being a Pixie meant, and now, my heart, spirit, and love for their music is embedded in me and I feel like I have become a Pixie. We had been more about the history of the Pixies, but now, we are about going forward.''

Unlike most other Pixies records, Head Carrier came together after six intensive weeks in the studio, rather than a few days. Drummer David Lovering said in a press release: ''This was a wonderful luxury, for us to have the time to be able to really work these new songs out. By the time we started recording, we all knew the songs backwards and forwards, so it took half as long for us to make this album as it did to make 'Indie Cindy.' And it was great working with Tom... he started with us in pre-production and played a big part in keeping us focused on making the best music we could.''
