Frank Black reveals details of two new albums

He'll use the Black Francis moniker once again

Frank Black reveals details of two new albums
Pixies frontman Frank Black has two new albums on the way.

'Bluefinger' -- a new album inspired by Dutch painter Herman Brood -- is slated for a September release via Cooking Vinyl.

This album will see Black returning to the name Black Francis -- a moniker he used during his early days with the Pixies.

The album's first single, 'Threshold Apprehension', will be available as a digital download beginning May 7. It will then be released as a limited edition 7” single and a digital download bundle beginning May 25.

Speaking about the new album, Black said, "I used a couple of Herman Brood's painting titles for songs of my own for my new record 'Bluefinger'.

"I have my own impressions as to what his painting 'Threshold Apprehension' was all about. My song 'Threshold Apprehension' has nothing to do with the painting except that it, and my record 'Bluefinger', has everything to do with my impressions of Herman Brood,” he said.

Black is also set to release a greatest hits album on June 12, entitled 'Best of Frank Black 93 - 03'. It is meant to serve as a narrative of Black's solo career during the 10-year period.
