Into the blue sky, Takes me far away, Into the sunset, Rising in from another day

The Pixies are back this week with their video for “Human Crime”, their first new track since their October 2020 single “Hear Me Out”.

The song was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety in Los Angeles in the fall of last year. Penned by frontman Black Francis, It is reflective and bittersweet, asking for compassion for a lost relationship that lingers in the physical spaces associated with memory, coloring even the brightest moments with sadness.

“Human Crime” features a playful music video directed by the Pixies bassist, Paz Lenchantin that was filmed at the abandoned bunkers in San Pedro, and Gold Diggers Bar in Los Angeles.

“The storyline is loosely based on an ‘inside joke’ between Charles and I about going on tour,” Lenchantim explains. “How we go through a door from our reality state into the altered state of becoming and being a Pixie.”

Watch the video below:

In less than two weeks, the Pixies are set to embark on their first tour in two years. Following several West Coast dates starting March 15th, the band will play a gig at Vive Latine in Mexico City, before playing the BBC 6 Music Festival in Wales.

The live itinerary picks up again in the summer with UK and Europe with dates running from late June until early September.
