Pixies star to release Christmas album

Frank Black gets seasonal

Pixies frontman Frank Black is set to release a Christmas album later this month.

‘Christmass’, out on December 18, is comprised of live acoustic recordings from Summer 2006, along with five tracks recorded partly in hotel rooms and partly at Planet of Sound Studios in Hartford, Connecticut.

There is also a DVD with selections from one of the live acoustic shows. The package is currently only available as a mail order release from Cookingvinylrecordstore.co.uk.

As reported exclusively by NME.COM in October, Pixies are planning to reconvene in January to start work on their first album in 16 years.
