Billy Corgan is back with another Smashing Pumpkins album, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope 1: Songs for a Sailor, and says the album “harkens back to the original psychedelic roots of The Smashing Pumpkins; atmospheric, melodic, heavy, and pretty,” although he does have a new lineup for the band that includes guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist Nicole Fiorentino. “Each song we’ve recorded is like its own movie,” says Corgan, who has offered up the album up for free song-by-song on the band’s website. “Hopefully when you put all 44 songs together they’ll create a bigger journey that can only be seen when you have all the pieces to the map.” Of course, die-hard fans can purchase the limited edition box set, which is packaged in a silk-screened wooden box….
