Pixies have performed a new song called ‘Um Chagga Lagga’ live.
The band recently revealed that they’re working on new music, now performing this new cut in session for Rolling Stone. The track was also debuted during a live show at New York’s Beacon Theatre last week (May 26). Watch footage of both performances below.
Earlier this week, the Pixies confirmed that they’re intending to follow on from last year’s ‘Indie Cindy’ LP. ‘Indie Cindy’ was the band’s first studio album since 1991, with drummer David Lovering and guitarist Joey Santiago revealing that new material is in the works.
“We are working on new music,” Santiago told Billboard. “Sometimes we try [new songs] out live. It depends how we feel – and that’s how we do it always; the set list always depends on how we feel. These songs are a little more precious, a little more shy to come out live.”
Lovering added: “We don’t write anything down. Behind each of the songs, we’re trying to do something that we haven’t done since we were a baby band. We have the opportunity to do these songs and play them around clubs, so it’s a really great way to hone it on the road.”
Pixies frontman Black Francis recently said that he’s “fine” with streaming services like Spotify and Tidal, because “iTunes is a pain in the ass”.
Francis and co will open for Robert Plant on tour in Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto, Rochester Hills and Raleigh this month (June).
