Default TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE

http://www.smashingpumpkins.com/page...pumpkins-album

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, 4 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 EP's (of 4 songs each times 11), and details of how those EP's will be made available are still being worked out. Because the songs themselves will be free, the EP's will be more like collectors items for the discerning fan who will want the art itself, along with the highest possible audio quality available. The EP's will be more like mini-box sets rather than your normal cd single. We may also offer other variations for sale, say for example a digital single with a demo version of a song. The commitment that is most important is the one I'm making to you: that the music of 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' will be available for free to everyone. All 44 songs: free for ALL.

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.

The story of the album is based on 'The Fool's Journey', as signified in the progress of the Tarot. It is my intention to approach this by breaking down the journey of our life here into four phases as made by these different characters; the Child, the Fool, the Skeptic, and the Mystic.

The music of 'Teargarden by Kaleidyscope' harkens back to the original psychedelic roots of The Smashing Pumpkins: atmospheric, melodic, heavy, and pretty.

I already have 53 songs written for the record, so I am quite confident that I already have much of the material that I would need to undertake such an extensive project. I am very committed to seeing this album through to its completion and very, very excited about the prospect of delivering new Smashing Pumpkins music to you in a unique and exciting way.

Not quite as shocking as I expected, but still a very good thing! I suppose it is groundbreaking in the fact that they're starting to release an album before it's finished.

He would have sold more albums if he named it "Hundreds of Gigabytes of Porn".

Also, no one is bummed because the album is going to be about Tarot? Regardless, I'm happy about the way he described the music style. I had been thinking that some of his recent work was reminiscent of early 90's Pumpkins.

The only thing I can see people getting mad about is the tarot stuff and people making assumptions about the quality of the music.

Otherwise, this is pretty half decent news in a posting that was almost completely bullshit free. Pretty cool.

I hope those EP's are done on vinyl. There are few things shittier than a 4-song cd.

I really wonder what his motivation is for releasing the songs in this way. If he's considering these 44 songs to be a unified body of work, all it seems to do is provide an opportunity for people to judge, criticize and reject it before it's even finished being released. On the fan's end I do think it has a nice advent calendar type of experience to it. I hope it's good.

edit: also I hope we're not being made to choose between 128kb/s mp3s and $20 x 11 EPs or something equally asinine.

I was starting to really think that Billy sold out what, with the multi-colored zeitgeists and all of the commercials being made. But now that I hear the album is completely free, I must retract my thoughts. This is pretty sweet news and that is quite generous.

I'm not gonna lie I'm pretty damn excited. I'd rather he release all the songs at once though.
