The Breeders have returned with their first new song in years. The incredibly fantastic new single is called "Wait In The Car" and features the band's classic Last Splash lineup -- Kim and Kelley Deal, Josephine Wiggs, and Jim Macpherson. The quartet reunited in 2013 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Last Splash, and since then they've been working on new material. Today they've unveiled the first taste of their labor -- the short and sweet and oh-so-catchy single "Wait In The Car."

The video for "Wait In The Car" was created by Chris Bigg and Martin Andersen and stars...a brick (or two). Bigg and Andersen explain their brick fascination:

"We both liked the idea of using something iconic yet quite banal. An old brick has a story and it’s a beautiful raw object. We started collecting more and more (some intact, some broken) and realised how different they all appear, each one having its own identity."



"Wait In The Car" is out now as a digital download and on streaming services. The single will be released physically on limited edition 7" colored vinyl. Three different colored vinyl editions with a different b-side and cover art will be released - each edition is limited to 1500 copies:

1. Orange vinyl edition b/w "Archangel's Thunderbird" (Amon Düül II cover) will be for sale on the Breeders' upcoming live shows

2. Yellow vinyl b/w a cover of Devo's "Gates Of Steel" will be released October 27th and available exclusively at independent record stores

3. Red vinyl edition featuring Kim Deal's cover of Mike Nesmith's "Joanne" (details will be announced later this year)

For more details on any of the 7" singles, visit the official website here.

The Breeders hit the road later this month in the UK and kick off their North American headline tour at the Magic Stick in Detroit on November 1st. Tickets for most of the shows are already sold out, however tickets for the Detroit show are still available, so if you're thinking of going don't wait on it.
