Pixies have announced the release of their first music since the addition of Band of Skulls bassist Emma Richardson to the lineup. The first release of 2024 takes the form of AA-side single You’re So Impatient / Que Sera, Sera.

The two sister tracks see Pixies “creating a macabre and cinematic picture of American pop culture.” The explosive two-minute punk track You're So Impatient manages to fit in a short guitar solo that complements the frenetic nature of the track. Conversely, the acoustic guitar-heavy Que Sera, Sera cleanses the palate with an eerie rendition of the 1955 track of Doris Day fame.
