Pixies shared the new single “Dregs Of The Wine.” The bombastic song appears on the band’s forthcoming studio album, Doggerel.
Doggerel is set for release through BMG on September 30. The 12-track set marks the band’s eighth studio album and first since 2019’s Beneath The Eyrie. Pixies — guitarists Black Francis and Joey Santiago, drummer David Lovering and bassist Paz Lenchantin — assembled with producer Tom Dalgety at Guilford, Vermont’s Guilford Sound facility earlier this year to record the LP. The four-piece previously previewed Doggerel with singles “Vault Of Heaven” and “There’s A Moon On.”
Joey Santiago receives a songwriting credit on “Dregs Of The Wine,” his first. “I guess I was in kind of a zombie state, just playing,” the guitarist explained. “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.’” Santiago added, “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!'”
Black Francis noted “Dregs Of The Wine” 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.”
