Bossanova is the third studio album by American rock band Pixies. It was released in August 13, 1990 on the English independent record label 4AD in the United Kingdom and by Elektra Records in the United States. The album's sound, inspired by surf rock and space rock, complements its lyrical focus on outer space, which references subjects such as aliens and unidentified flying objects.

When Bossanova arrived in 1990, it reflected the exhaustion the Pixies felt after Doolittle's enormous success: For the first time, the band seems to be running out of ideas. Tellingly, Kim Deal contributes no songs, having formed the Breeders to give her work an outlet that summer, their debut Pod won a warmer response than Bossanova received. Arguably the Pixies' weakest album - though Francis has said it's his favorite - most of it finds the band in fine form. Released August 13, 1990. Bossanova Tracklist. Cecilia Ann Lyrics. About Bossanova. Government conspiracy, race relations, aliens, surf films, the immigrant experience, class struggle, and the death of stars are a few of the topics on this album where no topic is off-topic. This lyrical hodgepodge is folded into the sonically controlled chaos the Pixies perfected by this part of their career. Its confusing and its simple. Even the title of the album is open for interpretation: a Brazilian style of music employed in some songs, a really cool boss star explosion, or a typo Bossa nova is the genre of music.

Bossanova is the third album by the American alternative rock band Pixies, released in August 1990 on the English independent record label 4AD. All of Bossanova's original material was written by the band's frontman Black Francis it marked the point where his artistic control over the band became absolute. The album's sound, inspired by surf and space rock, complements its lyrical focus on outer space, which references subjects such as aliens and unidentified flying objects. Doolittle - The Pixies third album and big-label debut - was one of 1989s most acclaimed releases it garnered truckloads of critical hosannas for its disturbing, dizzying variations on alternative-guitar-rock themes. For the follow-up, the Boston foursome could have kept drawing from the same well, but Bossanova is a pretty far cry from its predecessor. This time, the Pixies have left certain of their attention-grabbing college-band antics behind. Potent and compelling, Bossanova leaves the listener curiously anticipating the Pixies next move.
