The barely two-minute track opens up with the sounds found on that tweet, some power chords followed by Kim Deal shouting, “Good morning!” Its video was directed by Chris Bigg and Martin Andersen, who created the video out of 800 still images.
“Wait in the Car” is their first new music since 2009’s Fate to Fatal EP, with their last full-length, Mountain Battles, came out the year before that. However, as Rolling Stone notes, it’s not, as of now, scheduled for inclusion on an upcoming album.
Instead, the song will be released on three separated colored vinyl 7-inch singles. Fans attending their upcoming tour will be able to purchase an orange vinyl copy backed with a cover of Amon Düül II’s “Archangel’s Thunderbird” that they recorded with Steve Albini. On Oct. 27, a yellow vinyl version, with their take on Devo‘s “Gates of Steel” as the b-side, will arrive in select independent record shops. They have yet to announce details for the third single, a red vinyl 45 with a cover of Michael Nesmith’s “Joanne” on the flip side. Pressings of all three will be limited to 1,500 copies.
After a show at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, Ky., on Oct. 10, the Breeders will head to Europe for two weeks before returning home to open a pair of shows for Arcade Fire. Then, they’ll begin a headlining tour of the U.S. on Nov. 1 at the Magic Stick in Detroit that will run through Nov. 13 at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles.
