Smashing Pumpkins releasing new EP in time for Christmas
â€˜Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Vol. II: The Solstice Bareâ€™ is a mouthful and a handful
As part of Billy Corgan and Co.’s 44-song adventure “Teargarden by Kaleidyscope,” the Smashing Pumpkins are releasing a physical edition of four of those songs as an EP this fall.
“Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Vol. II: The Solstice Bare” will be out on Nov. 23, on a limited-run deluxe CD/12-inch vinyl “picture disc.” Featured are “The Fellowship,” current single “Freak,” “Tom Tom,” “Spangled” and B-side “Cottonwood Symphony.”
As with the Smashing Pumpkins’ first EP released earlier this year – “Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Vol. I: Songs for a Sailor” – the set is made up of songs released as part of the larger Kaleidyscope project, in which Corgan releases the songs, one at a time, for free online. No word when all 44 will be completed and posted. So far, only six songs are available online, with “Tom Tom” surely to follow. “The Fellowship” is currently only available on the new “Vampire Diaries” soundtrack.
