After almost ten years of silence, a new Pixies song, “Bagboy,” debuted on the legendary band’s official website on Friday morning (June 28, 2012). “Bagboy” comes just one week after Pixies bassist Kim Deal left the band after 25 years. The founding member has been focusing on a Breeders reunion to mark the 20th anniversary of their debut record ‘Last Splash’. Check it out below!
Black Francis had this to say about the song in a statement:
“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.”
