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.
Doolittle is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Pixies, released in April 1989 on 4AD. The album's offbeat and dark subject material, featuring references to surrealism, Biblical violence, torture and death, contrasts with the clean production sound achieved by the newly hired producer Gil Norton. Doolittle was the Pixies' first international release, with Elektra Records as the album's distributor in the United States and PolyGram in Canada.
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.

People have referred to this, the eleventh Bossa Nova Beatniks' release, as a 'greatest hits' collection. However, when we found ourselves leaving songs like Jack Jack, Ack Ack, 20th Century LTD, Heart to Beat and others off the CD, we realized that it was more of a 'best of the recordings' collection.
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.
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).
