Despite all his rage, he is still just a man by a cage

 

Billy Corgan has shared a teaser image of the music video for Smashing Pumpkins‘ comeback single, ‘Solara’. Check it out below.

The photo shared on Instagram shows the frontman in a similar robe-like garb that he wore during the ‘Adore’ era, as Corgan waits ominously in a dimly-lit room beside an empty cage.

Corgan also revealed that the video had been directed by Nick Koenig, who has recently racked up millions of hits on Youtube with the videos for ‘Spotlight’ by Marshmello and ‘Awful Things’ by Lil Peep.

Meanwhile, as relations show no sign of improving between the band and former bassist D’Arcy Wretzky, Smashing Pumpkins are currently gearing up for a US tour as well as the release of three EPs of new material with the majority of their ‘classic’ founding line-up.

The eight tracks (titled ‘Alienation’, ‘Travels’, ‘Silvery Sometimes’, ‘Solara’, ‘With Sympathy’, ‘Marchin’ On’, ‘Knights of Malta’, ‘Seek And You Shall Destroy’) were produced by Rick Rubin and feature Corgan on guitar and vocals, along with guitarist James Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin from the original line-up, joined by longtime recent collaborator Jeff Schroeder.

Meanwhile, Corgan made headlines this week by defending the work ethic of fellow grunge icon Kurt Cobain.

“Kurt Cobain as a lyricist, as a songwriter, as visionary was a fucking assassin. He was great at what he did and it’s a shame he didn’t do more of it,” Corgan argued.

The post Billy Corgan shares first glimpse of Smashing Pumpkins’ comeback music video appeared first on NME.
