Former Pixies singer/guitarist Frank Black released his
new album with the Catholics in downloadable MP3 format Monday
(March 22) through the Internet music label GoodNoise (www.goodnoise.com).
The 14-song album, Pistolero -- which hits stores in traditional
CD form on SpinArt Records on Tuesday -- is available in its entirety
for $8.99, or for 99 cents per track. Last year, Black became one of the
first established musicians to release an album in MP3 format when he
released Frank Black and the Catholics, also through GoodNoise.
