In a new NME interview, Pixies vocalist and songwriter Black Francis has revealed that he is hoping to record the band's first new album since 1991's Trompe Le Monde. Francis told NME.COM that he would like to work on a film and music tie-in project:
The band needs to work with a film director. 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. 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.
This editor would like to suggest that maybe David Fincher is the right director for the Pixies.
