Only weeks after bassist Kim Deal announced that she was leaving the rock behemoth Pixies, lead instigator Black Francis took to the internet early this morning to unveil a new track and video. The song is called “Bagboy”, and it’s the first Pixies release in over nine years. Deal, as you’ll hear about a minute and 45 seconds into it, appears to be still on the song, but it’s not her, so don’t be alaramed. “Bagboy”, according to Francis, was written a few years ago, and that fact is already receiving a dose of ire from detractors. There is no news if this song will accompany a tour or an album, but it is available for stream/download/video consumption, so make of that what you will at this link.
The video, below, is directed by Lamar + Nik.
