Extra Bonus Track Of The Day: Smashing Pumpkins
You can’t stop The Smashing Pumpkins. As they get ever deeper into their plan of giving away no fewer than 44 songs, the band have reached the third step on the steep climb to Freedonia! So we have an extra bonus Track Of The Day. Check out all recent Tracks Of The Day.
After A Song For A Son and Widow Make My Mind, the latest offering courtesy of the Pumpkins’ Teargarden From The Kaleidyscope project is A Stitch In Time.
Now, we could waste time letting Billy Corgan tell you about the song. But you wanna hear it, right? However, as he’s giving you this protest song for free, let’s indulge Corgan for just a minute:
“The song came in during a stream of consciousness moment while sitting backstage at a Pumpkins concert in those wee, still hours between soundcheck and the show. The lyrics came just as surprisingly fast as the music, and the whole process took about 20 minutes.
“I recorded it on my phone, and so for a year it was the only document I had of the song. But the song stuck with me and I put it in my back pocket as something worth coming back to later.
“What I am protesting I’m not sure but it has something to do with real inner freedom and the consequence of what it means to be free.”
