“Absolutely Groundbreaking” announced today on the official Smashing Pumpkins website, Billy Corgan has released details about the new album which will be entitled “Teargarden by Kaleidyscope“. The album will feature 44 songs, 4 of which are now being recorded.
Corgan’s plan is to release a song at a time beginning around Halloween of this year with each new song coming shortly after until all 44 are finally released. Each song will be made available absolutely for free, to anyone anywhere. There will be no strings attached. Billy writes “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.”
There will however still be a physical copy available in the form of a highly limited edition EP’s (of 4 songs each times 11), details of the EP releases are still being worked out. Also when the entire album is finished it will be compiled into a deluxe box set which will also be made available for sale. Those who have bought the EP’s need not worry as the box set will not be a recompilation of the limited edition pieces.

Billy Corgan has started a new personal website for his spiritual side called, “Everything From Here to There“.
Describing it on the website Corgan writes:
“The purpose of this website is to discuss openly and without fear concepts of Mind-Body-Soul integration. If you are drawn to the Hidden Truths, drawn to God as something beyond limitation, and drawn to Love as the greatest force in the Universe, then you have come to the right place at the right time. This is a place of Love.
In discussing Mind-Body-Soul integration within the context of holistic Truth, many topics will be explored here that may be new to you. Like any good tree that one would hope to grow, we must set our roots deep into the ground so that what is real will prosper in the Light of Love.”
