Pixies planning Hollywood-themed new album

Frank Black reveals plan for new material

Pixies planning Hollywood-themed new album
Pixies frontman Black Francis has revealed that he is planning to record the band's first new album since 1991's 'Trompe Le Monde' with a Hollywood film director.

Francis told NME.COM that he would like to work on a film and music tie-in project, but did not rule out recording a standard new album.

"The band needs to work with a film director," he told NME.COM. "Quentin Tarantino or someone like that. It'd be like, 'Make some music for our film, you guys [Pixies] be the sound of the film'. Spread the word about the idea 'cos I think it's gonna work."

The singer/guitarist added that if the band keep playing live he'd be interested in recording a more conventional album.

"We'd have to finally get sick of playing the old repertoire and go, 'Alright, fuck it. Let's play new songs in our set'," he explained. "But the only way we'd really want to do it is if it was really great.

"There's a fear that if we try to commit something to tape then even if it doesn't come out stellar, somehow those recordings will get leaked. The band is beloved by its audience, so we don't want to fuck it up."

Pixies recently played an intimate club show in London to mark the forthcoming release of a new box set, 'Minotaur'.
