A few weeks ago, Pixies announced that founding member and bassist Kim Deal has departed the band.
"We are sad to say that Kim Deal has decided to leave the Pixies. We are very proud to have worked with her on and off over the last 25 years. Despite her decision to move on, we will always consider her a member of the Pixies, and her place will always be here for her. We wish her all the best."
In a recent email, Pixies announced a new song called "Bagboy."
"We have something new we'd like you to hear. Cover your breath, polish your teeth... BAGBOY."
It is the Pixies' first new song since 2004's "Bam Thwok" You can listen to the song in the player above and download it free. Hopefully this will lead to a full-length album.
