WILLIAM PATRICK CORGAN SHARES MUSIC VIDEO FOR NEW TRACK “THE SPANIARDS” OFF FORTHCOMING SOLO ALBUM OGILALA
GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan today shared “The Spaniards”, the second track off his forthcoming Rick Rubin produced solo album Ogilala. The ethereal song is available now at all digital retailers. Listen HERE. Ogilala is due for release on October 13, 2017 via BMG and is available for pre-order now HERE. Fans who pre-order the album will receive instant downloads of “The Spaniards” and previously released track “Aeronaut”.
Corgan today also shared an accompanying music video for “The Spaniards”. Directed by longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry, the video is comprised of scenes from Corgan’s recently announced silent film set to the music of Ogilala, Pillbox. Inspired by a hero’s journey, Pillbox was written by Corgan, and directed by Corgan alongside Strawberry. Watch the official trailer for the film HERE. The film will premiere next month with four sold-out screenings in London, Los Angeles, Chicago, and New York.
The media was quick to praise the sound of “Aeronaut”, hailing, “The song itself is unfussy and intimate and, more importantly, Corgan owns the performance with his inimitable voice that few in the ’90s would have figured for a romantic lead” (NPR), “‘Aeronaut’ is stately and bare: an unhurried piano riff outlines both beat and melody, while glinting strings occasionally rise to meet the keening, nasal lead vocal from Corgan” (Rolling Stone), “[‘Aeronaut’] is dominated by dramatic strings, piano, and, of course, his unmistakable vocals-which still sound pretty great” (Noisey).
Ogilala will be available digitally as well as physically on CD and 180 gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition opaque blue vinyl will be available directly from Corgan’s web store and a limited edition pink vinyl will be available at select indie retailers.
BERLIN LIVE PERFORMANCE STREAMING THIS SUNDAY
This Sunday, Corgan will debut new material from Ogilala at a special live performance for Berlin Live. Fans around the globe can tune in to a live stream of the performance on October 1st at 7:00pm CET HERE.
