Pixies recently released a new single, “Dregs Of The Wine,” from their upcoming album, Doggerel, which is due out on September 30 via BMG.

Pixies frontman Black Francis and guitarist Joey Santiago co-wrote “Dregs Of The Wine.”

“I guess I was in kind of a zombie state, just playing,” Santiago said of working on the song. “After I stopped playing, I put it down and went, ‘Well, that was a f—ing waste of time, what a piece of sh-t 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, ‘F–k! Hold on a second here! This stuff is good!'”

Black Francis added that 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.”

The band previously released “There’s a Moon On” and “Vault of Heaven” from the forthcoming album.
