Check out The Pixies’ New Single, “Bagboy”

By on July 1, 2013


Written by the Pixies and recorded at Rockfield Studios, Wales, UK, October 2012, the single “Bagboy” was produced by Gil Norton and features Black Francis on vocals, Joey Santiago on guitars/backing vocals, David Lovering on drums/backing vocals and Jeremy Dubs on bass/backing vocals.

Black Francis speaks about the new single: “The lyrics, coincidentally, were composed at a Starbucks Coffee in Harvard Square in Cambridge, about a hundred feet from where, 25 years ago, I composed some of the lyrics to an old Pixies song called ‘Break My Body.’   Twenty-five years later, some Starbucks in Harvard Square…I thought that was kind of interesting.  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 awhile. It’s pretty simple, kind of a blues-based, two-note kind of thing, really.”
