The Dandy Warhols recruit Pixies frontman Frank Black on "Danzig with Myself"

16 January 2024, 14:11 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

The Dandy Warhols have shared "Danzig with Myself" – the brand new collaboration with Pixies frontman Frank Black – which is the lead single from their forthcoming twelveth studio album, ROCKMAKER.

“It started with a riff that either sounded like Misfits or Danzig and then got slowed down,” explains Courtney Taylor-Taylor of The Dandy Warhols about their new single, "Danzig with Myself". “Over time, it became the working title, and then we couldn’t change it. I mean, come on… ‘Danzig with Myself’?!” he laughs at the play on words.

Speaking of how the collaboration with Frank Black came about, he added: "I was just checking in with him, and he happened to be in Zürich. I hooked him and some of his family up with some very interesting museum tours first, then I asked him if he would play on our record.” The result? “Of course, he did!”

ROCKMAKER follows their previous album, Tafelmuzik Means More When You're Alone, which clocked in at over three hours long.

Speaking of the inspiration behind the album, Taylor-Taylor says: “Sometimes we have a very focused idea of what we want. It’s generally what we want somebody else to make but since they never do, we have to. It has a very specific sound. There aren’t a lot of heavy guitar records currently coming out that we like, so that was the impetus for Rockmaker.”
