Former Pixies frontman Frank Black has been using his ninth solo album to vent his divorce pain.

The rocker recently split with his wife of 16 years, and admits much of new project SHOW ME YOUR TEARS deals with his feelings.

He says, "There's nothing like a little divorce and therapy to bring the sadness out, but I still seek to entertain - even if it's from a dark place. It's a pop record after all."
