Hear Pixies Support ‘Women of War’ on Surprise Record Store Day Single

Pixies, "Women of War," Record Store Day

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.
