Pixies release track

By | Published on Monday 1 July 2013


Pixies have parcelled what’s their first new single in nine years, this following the recent revelation that bassist Kim Deal was leaving the band. ‘Bagboy’, as it’s titled, is available free via an online giveaway. Apparently a Pixies PR has said it’s a one-off thing, aka isn’t a sign that a new Pixies LP is in the pipes. Wah.

Swooping in with the ‘Bagboy’ facts, it’s Black Francis: “The music for the song has been around for a few years. There are some demos I made with Joey and David a few years ago in Los Angeles, related to a film idea that still has yet to see the light of day, although work on the music continued. So a lot of the musical idea had been kicking around for a while. It’s pretty simple, kind of a blues-based, two-note kind of thing, really”.
