Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) Announces “Pillbox” Film

Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) has announced a new film titled “Pillbox.” The silent movie, which was written by Corgan, and co-directed by the singer and Linda Strawberry, will be set to music from Corgans’ new album “Ogilala” (out October 13). He said the following about that:

“I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie. Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself.”

Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins) To Release New Solo Album “Ogilala” In October, Streams New Song “Aeronaut”

Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan, who is now going by his full name William Patrick Corgan, has revealed that his new solo album “Ogilala” will be released on October 13. You can check out the first single “Aeronaut” below:

Corgan said the following about the upcoming album:

“For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I’d pen for whatever band was something I couldn’t explain. And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time orera. The lone difference on songs for Ogilala is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment. Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick [Rubin]’s hands to take the music wherever he’d like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction.”
