The Pixies are starting the new year with more new tunes with today’s surprise release of EP-2.
The alt-rockers also unveiled the music video for its lead single “Blue-Eyed Hexe,” which frontman Black Francis explained is a “tale from the northwestern part of the UK, and it’s a witch-woman kind of a song. That’s what a ‘hexe’ is, and ours is a blue-eyed hexe.”
According to guitarist Joey Santiago, producer Gil Norton provided specific direction for the song’s guitar solo.
“Gil wanted a swagger, he wanted the guitar solo to sound like you’re going to have sex with this blue-eyed hexe,” said Santiago.
