In case the Pixies’ first album in 23 years, Indie Cindy, wasn’t enough for fans who bought the double-LP ahead of its official April 29 release date, the revived alternative-rock pioneers included something extra. Along with the set, which collects the band’s recent EP-1EP-2, and EP-3 releases, Record Store Day shoppers could find a surprise seven-inch containing a new song, “Women of War.” The band then shared a stream and free download of the track, a noise-pop ode to female soldiers (“Be my soldier lover / And I’ll be your peaceful dove”) that fits in neatly with other recent Pixies material. Check it out below, and stream Indie Cindy in full over at The Guardian.
