Published Jun 28, 2013The Pixies have unveiled a new track titled "Bag Boy," serving as the band's first new music since 2004.
The new song comes just weeks after bassist Kim Deal announced her departure from the band, though there is speculation that she may still be featured on the new tune. While it has not been confirmed, if it's not her, the band have found a damn good replacement or been working on their Deal impression.
Black Francis said the following, in a statement about "Bag Boy":
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.
The last new Pixies material arrived in 2004 in the form of "Bam Thwok." The new track can be downloaded in the widget below for the price of an email address and is also accompanied by a video. Give it a watch below as well.
