Frank Black Addicted To Honey

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Some musicians get addicted to drugs but Frank Black admits he’s got a jones for “honey.”

That’s how he refers to the homespun soul music recorded in places like Memphis and Nashville, where he recorded his new solo CD, Honeycomb, which hits stores July 19.

Black recorded the record with soul legends like Steve Cropper, Spooner Oldham and David Hood and considers the sessions to be the “most moving and mind-blowing experience” of his career.

That’s quite an achievement considering the legacy Black has made with his other band, the Pixies, but Black admits he’s hooked.

In his words, “Once you’ve tasted that pure, pure honey, you want to get it again.”

Black plans to record future solo albums with the guys who recorded Honeycomb and tour with them as well but he says the solo album also gave him a new perspective on his regular band.

As he puts it, “I realized the Pixies already had a little honey in them as well.”
