SMASHING PUMPKINS Update: ‘TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE’ – New 44 Song Album To Be Released Song By Song For FREE – Eventually CollectedSeptember 17, 2009
Official statement from Billy Corgan via the bands Official website.
“I’m happy to finally announce the plans for the new SMASHING PUMPKINS album.
“Recording began yesterday, September 15th, 2009 on the new record which will be entitled ‘Teargarden by Kaleidyscope’. The album will feature 44 songs, four of which are now being recorded. My desire is to release a song at a time beginning around Halloween of this year, with each new release coming shortly after until all 44 are out. Each song will be made available absolutely for free, to anyone anywhere. There will be no strings attached. Free will mean free, which means you won’t have to sign up for anything, give an email address, or jump through a hoop. You will be able to go and take the song or songs as you wish, as many times as you wish.
We will however sell highly limited edition EPs (of four songs each times 11), and details of how those EPs will be made available are still being worked out…
…When the entire album is finished, it will be compiled into a deluxe box set which will also be made available for sale. “
