Billy Corgan has announced a new film project called Pillbox. Written and co-directed by Smashing Pumpkins frontman alongside Linda Strawberry, it’s soundtracked entirely by Corgan’s upcoming album, Ogilala.
“I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie,” Corgan shared in a statement. “Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself.”
Watch the fantastical trailer for Pillbox up above, which features war footage and what appears to be previously unheard music, presumably off Ogilala.
