Ahead of their visit to Edinburgh in September, US music legends Pixies have officially announced their seventh studio album, Beneath The Eyrie.
The eagerly-awaited follow-up to 2016’s Head Carrier will be released on September 13 on their new label, Infectious/BMG.
Beneath The Eyrie will feature 12 new songs and was recorded in December at Dreamland Recordings near Woodstock, New York.
Tom Dalgety, who also worked on Head Carrier, produced the record.
In a press release, Pixies describe the new album as as a place “where tales of witches, Daniel Boone, misfits and other characters fit utterly into the band’s inherent weirdness”.
Alongside the announcement, the band have shared the first song from the album, On Graveyard Hill – you can listen to it below.
Beneath The Eyrie will be released in a variety of formats, including a deluxe box set, standard heavyweight single gatefold black vinyl, deluxe CD in a hard casebound book, cassette, digital download, standard 12-song CD and standard heavyweight single gatefold coloured vinyl.
It’s available to pre-order now on the band’s website.
Pixies, who last played live in Edinburgh at Meadowbank Stadium in August 2005, will perform at the Usher Hall on Monday, 23 September.
