Pixies prep new album for September release alongside making-of podcast series

The record will come paired with a podcast offering up information about their creative process

The Pixies have just announced that they’re set to drop a new album in September, which will be their first release since 2016’s Head Carrier.

The album was recorded at Dreamland Recordings, and it’s going to come paired with a podcast offering up information about their creative process every step of the way. The Pixies partnered with podcast company Signal Co. No1 to make Past Is Prologue, which will be a 12-episode weekly podcast beginning in June.

“While the emphasis of the Podcast will be on the creation of the new album and looking forward, we were very interested, from a story perspective, in the way history has shaped who the Pixies are, and how and what they are creating now,” Signal Co. No1 co-founder Michael Simons explained in a press release. “How the past creates the present.”
