Yeah, but all that said was - "Billboard reports that Frank Black is currently preparing a new solo release for spring 2004 via SpinART" - this is slightly more information but still NOT ENOUGH!

I think this album contains the famous pre-Pixies demos + some new stuff (or re-recorded old stuff).

Maybe it's the source of the reunion rumors...

Okay thanks. I am pasting it here.

From the other thread -

Bob Allen at Cooking Vinyl says that they 'have an FB release penned in for possibly April BUT this is Black Francis demos. Not an entirely new thing.'

Great news anyway.

this might be a long shot, but it might also have something to do with 4ad issueing a new "best of" for the pixies. this could prove cooler than having the pixies have a tour if it includes rare stuff. or new recordings of old stuff.

Wasn't there a report a while back the canadian label Rounder was plannig an FB live release. He play's long shows. This new album could always be a live album titled "frank black francis" because he plays his entire career of songs in all his shows. It would be a little bit of a let down, since all the bootlegs that are available already, but it's a possiblity. Or it can be a Pearl Jam "lost dogs" esque release.

I know for sure that Frank was supposed to come back in the studio in December or January, but I don't know for what purpose exactly. At the time I got this info - early November -, I had just heard of the new Pixies best of, so I assumed (wrongly it turned out) that 4AD had asked Frank to add some new stuff to this compilation. Now I think the purpose of the recent recording session was to complete the mysterious double album.

Double cd on April sounds more than good. It's so grazy that FB can publish such a great stuff always in such a little time, don't get me wrong - I love it.
I'd love it to be a completely new studio album, Pixies first demos are already published, so is b-side collection..
Live albums are usually not as good as studio ones, I think, and there are propably shitloads of bootlegs already, don't know about those. It could also be the iTunes-stuff properly released, that's something I'd really like to see. I wish for more news soonsoonsoon.

Finally some good official news. I'm getting sick of all of the bullshit floating around as "confirmed" news.

Well, If you think live albums aren't good, check the live recording from mShepherd's Bush. The mix is fantastic.

I'd say pre-Pixies songs. Personally I can't imagine Frank re-recording Pixies songs.

I think this album features some old / previously unreleased stuff in both BF and FB versions.

My first initial thought is maybe "Frank Black Francis" is an all acoustic album with Frank doing material from his entire catalog. That would be cool. I love when Frank does acoustic performances.

I got me so down I got me a headache.
