Billy Corgan has dropped a new single titled "Aeronaut" and has also announced plans for a new album. The new release, which will be titled Ogilala, is due out via BMG on October 13 and the Smashing Pumpkins fronter opened up about the project with nme.com.
"For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I'd pen for whatever band was something I couldn't explain," said Corgan of the record. "And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time or era. The lone difference on songs for 'Ogilala' is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment.
"Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick's hands to take the music wherever he'd like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction."
