Listen: New Pixies Song – “Bagboy”

First New Song in Nine Years

Jun 28, 2013 Bookmark and Share

Happy Friday! Here, have a Pixies song—the first new tune in nine years. They may no longer have Kim Deal, but they do still have “it.” (Download "Bagboy" below for the price of an email to determine what “it” is.) You can also watch the accompanying video.

Says Black Francis of the new song:

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.
