The Pixies have released the first new song in nine years. This is the band’s first new track since “Bam Thwok” in 2004.

@PIXIES posted this Tweet early this morning, announcing the news:

“Bagboy” can be downloaded for free from the Pixies’ website by entering an email address.

“The lyrics, coincidentally, were composed at a Starbucks Coffee in Harvard Square in Cambridge, about a hundred feet from where, 25 years ago, I composed some of the lyrics to an old Pixies song called ‘Break My Body,’” Black Francis said in a statement. “The music for the song has been around for a few years. There are some demos I made with Joey and David a few years ago in Los Angeles, related to a film idea that still has yet to see the light of day, although work on the music continued.”

Earlier in June, bassist Kim Deal officially quit the Pixies though it sounds like she’s still singing on this track, which was recorded last October.

Formed in 1986, following a break up hiatus from 1993 to 2004, the band reformed and toured between 2009-2011 with their 1989 album “Doolittle.”
