The Smashing Pumpkins Announce New Album “Teargarden By Kaleidyscope” Will Be Offered Free Online
The Smashing Pumpkins have announced plans for their new album “Teargarden By Kaleidyscope” to be offered online for free. But wait, there’s more. This isn’t your typical album, it’s going to be a collection of 44 songs based on the Tarot’s “The Fool’s Journey”.
Acording to Corgan the collection “harkens back to the original psychedelic roots of The Smashing Pumpkins; atmospheric, melodic, heavy, and pretty” and will be complete by early next year followed by a world tour.
Regarding the release Corgan had this to say:
“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.”
On the album Corgan stated : ““is based on ‘The Fool’s Journey,’ as signified in the progress of the Tarot, the intention is to approach the work by breaking down the journey of life into four phases as made by different characters depicted in major arcana cards: the Child, the Fool, the Skeptic and the Mystic.”
