Billy Corgan offers up latest in free releases
Smashing Pumpkins have announced that they will release the next song in their ‘Teargarden By Kaleidyscope’ series at some point today (March 2) on their official website, Smashingpumpkins.com.
The song, entitled ‘A Stitch In Time’, will be the third in the ‘Teargarden…’ series. Billy Corgan and co plan to compile 44 ‘Teargarden…’ songs the band plan to eventually release on a one-off basis, via forthcoming EP releases.
“The song came in during a stream of consciousness moment while sitting backstage at a Pumpkins concert in those wee, still hours between soundcheck and the show,” Corgan said of ‘A Stitch In Time’.
He added, “The lyrics came just as surprisingly fast as the music, and the whole process took about 20 minutes. I recorded it on my phone, and so for a year it was the only document I had of the song.
“But the song stuck with me and I put it in my back pocket as something worth coming back to later. When I drew up the list of the first four songs to record this one easily made the cut because I think it has a signifying effect of what the album stands for, not so much musically but energetically and thematically.”
