Pixies are back with a new single, "Human Crime," their first new music since 2020. Led by a driving bassline, it's a very Classic Pixies-sounding track down to the surfy guitars and big chorus. Will there be more new music soon? Stay tuned.

The "Human Crime" video was directed by bassist Paz Lenchantin, who says, “The storyline is loosely based on an ‘inside joke’ between Charles and I about going on tour. How we go through a door from our reality state into the altered state of becoming and being a Pixie.” Watch that below.
