One of the Pixies' old pals also make a bit of a comeback...

TANYA DONELLY releases a new album next month.

Donelly was a major player in the 1990s US indie dynasty which revolved around the 4AD label, currently back in the headlines following the Pixies reunion.

A founding member of the seminal Throwing Muses with her stepsister Kristen Hersh, Donelly went on to form Breeders with Pixies bassist Kim Deal before leaving after one album to enjoy mainstream success with Belly.

The tracklisting is:

‘Divine Sweet Divide’

‘Every Devil’

‘Whiskey Tango’

‘Just In Case You Quit Me’
