Listen as Pixies pay tribute to classic actor in new track ‘Talent’

Song is lifted from upcoming album 'Head Carrier'

Pixies have unveiled another track from their upcoming new album.

‘Talent’ is the second song lifted from ‘Head Carrier’ and includes a cameo appearance from late US actor Jack Palance, known for his roles in Batman and City Slickers.

Pixies have already aired the album’s lead single ‘Um Chagga Lagga’.


‘Head Carrier’ will follow on from the band’s 2014 comeback LP ‘Indie Cindy’. It’s out on September 30 and was made with Royal Blood producer Tom Dalgety.

Black recently compared the band’s new album to 1989’s ‘Doolittle’, saying: “It’s got a bit of early Pixies slosh in it.”

The band have just announced new live dates, including dates in London, Leeds, Glasgow, Newcastle, Manchester, Cardiff and Birmingham. See those in full below. Tickets go on general sale this Friday (August 19).
