Experimental group Xiu Xiu return with news of their next project Girl with Basket of Fruit, announced with the offbeat lead single "Scisssssssors".

"Scisssssssors" is the lead single from Xiu Xiu's 14th studio album, and is the first single from the experimental group after releasing "Ghost Maid" as XXL, a collaboration with Italian experimental group Larsen.

The new track arrives with ritual-inspired visuals directed by Xiu Xiu's Angela Seo, and Anna Lian Tes.

Girl with Basket of Fruit is produced by Xiu Xiu's own Angelo Seo and Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier, and will be their first record since 2017's Forget.

Late last year they reworked ZZ Top's classic rock track "Sharp Dressed Man". Earlier this year Xiu Xiu teamed up with Mitski for a six-and-a-half-minute track “Between The Breaths”.
