It premiered on Lauren Laverne's BBC Radio 6 Music show earlier today (September 13)
Smashing Pumpkins have a shared a brand new song, ‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’ – listen to the track’s world premiere below.
The song was first brought to light back in March as one of 26 new tracks which had been recorded by Billy Corgan‘s reunited band, with the frontman telling fans at the time that the song was set to feature on a brand new EP.
However, it now appears that ‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’ will actually feature on an upcoming Smashing Pumpkins album, with BBC DJ Lauren Laverne – who premiered the track on her Radio 6 Music show earlier today (September 13) – revealing on air that a Rick Rubin-produced album is due from the band in mid-November. The new track was recorded at Rubin’s Shangri-La Studios in Malibu.
You can listen to ‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’ here around the 1:52:40 mark, and hear a teaser of the track below.
‘Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)’ follows on from the release of the band’s comeback single ‘Solara’ back in June, which was the first Smashing Pumpkins song since 2000 to feature founding members Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin.
Smashing Pumpkins will play a one-off show at London’s SSE Arena in Wembley on October 16 – and you can grab any remaining tickets for that gig here.
Earlier this week, Billy Corgan revealed that he wants to record with Kanye West on a possible future collaboration.
