The Pixies still got it. Black Francis and company are on the comeback trail with a brand new song, “On Graveyard Hill.” It’s the lead track from the band’s forthcoming full-length, Beneath the Eyrie. The album will be the group’s seventh studio effort when it’s released on September 13.
“On Graveyard Hill” seethes with the manic energy of classic Pixies, with Black Francis’ vocals as the most distinctive feature. Recorded without any effects or distortion, he sounds like a new man. Give the track a spin below.
Beneath the Eyrie arrives with twelve songs about “witches, Daniel Boone, misfits,” and other spooky stuff. Halloween 2019 soundtrack? Signs point to yes. The album was produced by Tom Dalgety, who most recently racked up some Grammy nominations with the band Ghost.
The Pixies will surely roll out a slew of new tunes when they perform at The Cure’s Daydream Festival in Pasadena, California on August 31.
