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.

Bossanova (Pixies album). Bossanova is the third studio album by American rock band Pixies. All of Bossanova's original material was written by the band's frontman Black Francis; this was a first for a Pixies album, but he has written all of their songs since. The album's sound, inspired by surf rock and space rock, complements its lyrical focus on outer space, which references subjects.

Released August 13, 1990. 1. Cecilia Ann Lyrics. This lyrical hodgepodge is folded into the sonically controlled chaos the Pixies perfected by this part of their career. It’s confusing and it’s 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).

LP (12" album, 33 rpm). Pixies Format: Vinyl.

Album · 1990 · 14 Songs. Surfer Rosa (Remastered). Wave of Mutilation: Best of Pixies.

Bossanova, along with what many have said to be the Pixies weakest album, is probably the most experimental Pixies album. Joey Santiago and Black Francis had always been huge surf rock fans. That influence is very obvious throughout most of Bossanova. The first song on Bossanova, Cecilia Ann, takes this idea and runs with it. The very first note of Cecilia Ann is that of a guitar that has that heavy, distorted surfer rock guitar sound. Then everything comes in as if it’s a mirage.
