Pixies Share New Song ‘Dregs of the Wine’

    Pixies have released a new song, ‘Dregs of the Wine’, taken from their forthcoming album Doggerel. Marking the first Pixies song with a writing credit from guitarist Joey Santiago, the track follows previous singles ‘There’s a Moon On’ and ‘Vault of Heaven’. Give it a listen below.

    According to Black Francis, the song is about “living in Los Angeles in the ‘90s with my then-wife, hanging out with Joey and his ex-wife, lots of trips to Las Vegas, a lot of drinking, little bit drug taking, some genuine good times.”

    “I guess I was in kind of a zombie state, just playing,” Santiago said of the track in a statement. “After I stopped playing, I put it down and went, ‘Well, that was a fucking waste of time, what a piece of shit I am.’ I beat myself up a lot, but my girlfriend, unbeknownst to me, was recording me. She played it back to me, and I go, ‘Fuck! Hold on a second here! This stuff is good!’”

    Doggerel will be released on September 30 via BMG.
