(Classic Rock) Pixies leader Black Francis says he doesn't think he'll record further solo albums. His last release outside of Pixies was 2011's Paley & Francis which he recorded with Reid Paley, and his last full solo record was NonStopErotik in 2010.

And as Pixies prepare to launch their sixth album Head Carrier on September 30, Francis - aka Charles Thompson - says he can't foresee himself releasing further solo material.

He tells Rolling Stone: "I can't really justify it. It takes a lot of energy, ultimately, to put out a record. Then people want you to go on tour to promote it.

"Pixies are pretty successful in the touring realm. I can't really say, 'OK, kids, I'm going on tour again, bye. But this time I'm not going to make any money. I'm just doing it because I'm an artist.'

"It just doesn't feel right. It kind of goes up against my more blue-collar outlook. And I paint. If I have extra creative energy, I try to direct it there. And that doesn't interfere with my musical career." Read more here.
