Pixies man Frank Black will produce the next Art Brut album, according to frontman Eddie Argos.

Argos announced that the follow-up to their second album 'It's A Bit Complicated', rumoured to be titled 'Art Brut vs. Satan', will be overseen by Black when they reconvene in the studio very soon.

"I was thinking about trying to put anybody off that asked me outright if the Pixies legend Frank Black was producing our next album by telling them that they must have misheard and in fact the legendary Pixie Geldof was. I'm glad I didn't have to stoop that low to hide our secret," he wrote on his blog, adding that the quintet have approximately twenty songs ready for the sessions.
