Pixies share ‘Tenement Song’ music video
Watch the first video off their new album, ‘Head Carrier'
Fans have to wait a few more weeks for the release of a new album from Pixies, but the band gave them a sweet Labor Day surprise this Monday: the first music video off the new LP, for the track “Tenement Song.”
The inventive animated video follows a rat as it scurries around the titular building, checking in with its various eccentric inhabitants — all brought to life using a variety of animation techniques — before the entire structure is burned to the ground.
Back in February, Pixies teased the album — the band’s first since 2014’s Indie Cindy, which came a full 23 years after 1991’s Trompe le Monde. The new collection, Head Carrier, will drop at the end of this month, and the band has already released two tracks off the album: “Um Chagga Lagga,” which dropped in July and “Talent,” which arrived in August.
Check out the video for “Tenement Song” above. Head Carrier is due out Sept. 30.
