Unless Frank Black is pulling our collective leg, the Pixies will soon start recording music for their first studio album since 1991’s Trompe Le Monde. “We’re rehearsing in January if we can persuade Kim [Deal, bassist] to come out of her house,” Black told NME.com. “We offered to go to her but we figured if we book the rehearsals she’ll show up.”
Black said getting back into the studio is only natural since the Pixies have been performing live together. “Since we got back together we’ve played almost everywhere we can,” Black said. “I know we like playing and everyone likes touring together, so to keep doing that and not record anything is kind of like being a county fair band. We don’t want to do that, so the only thing we can do is become a vital band again. So it’s just a matter of doing it, I guess.” The frontman also noted that the Pixies will release a “Best Of” in 2007.
