Pixies Debut Alternate Video For “Bagboy”

Jul 25, 2013 Bookmark and Share


Last month, alt-rock icons Pixies released "Bagboy," their first new song in nine yearsthey recorded a one-off track for a Shrek movie when they first reunited in 2004and they decided one video wasn't enough for the song. The new video was created by Kestrel Media and inspired by the cover art for the single, a piece called Bagboy by artist Vaughn Oliver. 

Frontman Black Francis told Rolling Stone, "We didn't set out to have two music videos for 'Bagboy,' but once we saw both of these, we knew we didn't want to use just one.  And look, who says you can't have two videos for a song that shows two completely different perspectives?  Not us."

This comes shortly after news of bassist Kim Deal's departure. Pixies are currently rehearsing for an upcoming tour.
