Alt-rock band The Pixies have released a new song entitled “Bagboy”, their first new material in about 10 years. Their last released recording was 2004′s “Bam Thwok”, which was nearly on the Shrek 2 soundtrack. The video can be seen below and there is also a widget by which you can enter your email and get the song as a free download.

Black Francis: “The lyrics, coincidentally, were composed at a Starbucks Coffee in Harvard Square in Cambridge, about a hundred feet from where, 25 years ago, I composed some of the lyrics to an old Pixies song called ‘Break My Body.’ Twenty-five years later, some Starbucks in Harvard Square…I thought that was kind of interesting. The music for the song has been around for a few years. There are some demos I made with Joey and David a few years ago in Los Angeles, related to a film idea that still has yet to see the light of day, although work on the music continued. So a lot of the musical idea had been kicking around for awhile. It’s pretty simple, kind of a blues-based, two-note kind of thing, really.

On June 13th, the band confirmed that bassist Kim Deal had officially left the band.

I had a bad reaction to your public hobby writings
I get no satisfaction from your very recent sightings

cover your breath
cover your teeth
cover your breath
polish your speech

like when I hear the sound of feet slapping on the runway
like a small bird pretty while it’s crapping on the new day
cover your breath
polish your speech
cover your breath
polish your teeth

so disappointed I was that I had made small talk with you
I’m not feeling your buzz I only smell your crock of stew
polish your teeth
alter your breath
alter your teeth
cover your breath
Bag boy bag boy bag boy bag boy

she had some beauty and manners but you look like a bug
migrations of their type are such good planners and not smug
cover your breath
alter your speech
cover your breath
alter your speech
Bag boy bag boy bag boy bag boy

you are proselytizing alone
listening to the voice with your ears
you have regurgitated the tone
now sat in your tract for many years
picked up from dead things that you licked
it’s a feedback loop you can’t evict
cover your breath
cover your teeth
cover your breath
polish your speech
cover your breath
polish your speech
cover your breath
polish your teeth
polish your teeth
alter your breath
alter your teeth
cover your breath
cover your breath
alter your speech
cover your breath
alter your speech

    The Pixies are one of my all-time favorite bands. I was SO EXCITED to read there was a new song!!! It’s not horrible. But it sounds like Diggin’ for Fire (there are parts in the music where my mind went right to Diggin’). Oh well…

    I don’t mean to dis on Pixies fans, and this is only my opinion so it shouldn’t matter to them anyway but this song is terrible….
