FRANK BLACK, who recently released his acclaimed retrospective album "93-03," has recorded an exclusive live session for iTunes (www.itunes.com).

Black and his band - Black (vocals/guitar), Charles Normal (guitar), Ding (bass), and Jason Carter (drums), recorded the session on July 6, 2007 at the Rockhal Studios in Luxembourg. The five-song session, which features two of Black's own songs alongside three cover selections, is now available to download from iTunes.

The tracks include:
1. Re-Make/Re-Model (Roxy Music cover)
2. Massif Central
3. Manitoba
4. History Song (The Good, The Bad & The Queen cover)
5. The Black Rider (Tom Waits cover)

Frank Black's alter ego, BLACK FRANCIS, will release his new album, "Bluefinger," on September 11. The album features 11 songs that directly and indirectly reference the talented yet eccentric Dutch painter/musician Herman Brood. Early reviews in the UK have been excellent:

"'Bluefinger' marks an artistic rebirth for the king of quiet/loud." -- Mojo

"...a superb collection of surreal yet poignant alt-rock." -- Rocksound
