williampatrickcorgan ogilalaGrammy Award-winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and SMASHING PUMPKINS front man, William Patrick Corgan, announced the release of his second solo album ‘Ogilala’ on October 13 via BMG. The album, produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, presents Corgan’s distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings. To coincide with the announcement, Corgan has released the album’s striking first track, ‘Aeronaut’.

“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 or era. The lone difference on songs for ‘Ogilala’ is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment,”said Corgan. “Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick'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.”
