“Head Carrier” is the sixth studio album by the American alternative rock band the Pixies, released on 30th September 2016 on Pixiesmusic and PIAS. Produced by Tom Dalgety and recorded at RAK Studios in London, it marks the debut of new band member Paz Lenchantin on bass guitar, who joined the band in 2014 to support their previous album, “Indie Cindy.”

The album’s title alludes to a cephalophore, specifically St. Denis of Paris.
Production commenced in late 2015 with the appointment of Tom Dalgety as producer, replacing Gil Norton. The band had been testing potential tracks for the album during live performances, including “Super Lecker,” “O’ Little Cloud,” and “Down to Tulom.”

“Head Carrier” sees Paz Lenchantin’s first full appearance as bassist, succeeding Kim Deal who left the band in 2013. Lenchantin previously featured on the bonus track “Women of War” from “Indie Cindy” and had been the touring bassist before being promoted to a full-time member. She contributed to the album with a writing credit and lead vocals on the song “All I Think About Now,” which serves as a tribute to Kim Deal.

The album was announced on 6th July 2016 with the release of its first single, “Um Chagga Lagga.” This was followed by the release of a second single, “Talent,” on 17th August 2016. The entire album was streamed on NPR starting 22nd September 2016.
