Pixies - Bossanova: Wikipedia Album Entry
Bossanova is the third album by the American alternative rock band Pixies, released in August 1990 on the English independent record label 4AD. All of Bossanova's original material was written by the band's frontman Black Francis; it marked the point where his artistic control over the band became absolute. The album's sound, inspired by surf and space rock, complements its lyrical focus on outer space, which references subjects such as aliens and unidentified flying objects.
Because of 4AD's independent status, major label Elektra Records handled distribution in the United States; however, Bossanova only reached #70 on the Billboard 200. It charted significantly higher in the United Kingdom, reaching #3 in the Albums Chart. Two singles were released from Bossanova, Velouria and Dig for Fire both charted highly on the U.S. Modern Rock Tracks chart.
