Smashing Pumpkins Debut New Song “Owata”

Smashing Pumpkins ringleader Billy Corgan doesn’t seem to know the definition of moderation when it comes to music. Already a quarter into his 44-track Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, Corgan released the 10th Teargarden song called “Owata”.

“Owata” is one of the more traditional rock arrangements from the Pumpkins, infusing pop sensibilities with arena-rock riffs. You can listen to the song over at LA Weekly blog West Coast Sound.

Smashing Pumpkins plan to release a new LP entitled Oceania sometime in September, which will fit under the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope umbrella. The disc is being described as “an album within an album”.

But wait, there’s more.

Corgan is gearing up to reissue the Pumpkins’ entire catalog in the next couple of years, which all will be remastered and include bonus content. Gish, Siamese Dream and Pisces Iscariot will be reissued this fall. The double-disc Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, The Aeroplane Flies High and Adore will see their extended lives in 2012, and 2013 will bring Machina/The Machine of God and Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music in one bundled release.

Are you stoked about all the new (and old) Smashing Pumpkins material that’s coming out in the next few years?
