Boston alt rockers Pixies have shared the video for their new single "Hear Me Out".
The double A-side single Hear Me Out / Mambo Sun will be out on October 16th. Get your copy here.
The song was written by frontman Black Francis and Lenchantin at Dreamland Studios during sessions for ‘Beneath The Eyrie’, with production courtesy of the Grammy-nominated Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Ghost, etc.).
“‘Hear Me Out’ is about things not turning out the way we hoped, but knowing that it’s going to be ok regardless,”says Lenchantin. “Black started the melody phrases on an old organ. I loved it right away, so he asked me to take a pass at the lyrics. The song has an evocative melody that inspired the lyrics to come out straight away.”
Joey Santiago added, “Paz sounds like she’s talking to a guy with deaf ears. I did a western style riff at the end of verses, which was like giving her a gun so the dude would pay attention.”
