Both the tracks will feature on the upcoming Smashing Pumpkins album due via Sumerian Records.
Today, one of the plethora of countdown clocks (Doomsday Clocks?) ran down to zero on the official Smashing Pumpkins website. As a result, the ’90s alt rock legends released two new songs that are set to appear on their upcoming new album. Both tracks include a distinctly electronic rock vibe. Don’t expect any big fuzzy guitars here my friends. Keep an eye on the Pumpkins website as there are still five countdown clocks to go. Check out the video for ‘Cyr’ above and then have a listen to ‘The Colour of Love’ via YouTube below.
“‘Cyr’ is dystopic folly,” commented Corgan in a press release. “One soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me, it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn’t possible with faith.”
