The Smashing Pumpkins will drop their new double album CYR on November 27th via Sumerian Records. Already, we’ve heard the stellar title track and the even more prolific stunner “The Colour of Your Love”. Now, we have two new cuts off the album to absorb: “Confessions of a Dopamine Addict” and “Wrath”.
The laboriously titled “Confessions…” is a little too slick for this writer’s taste, and finds Corgan ramblin’ on to middling effect. Not gonna lie, it sounds like something culled from his post-Zeitgeist notebooks circa 2008. “Wrath”, however, finds steadier footing with a juicy beat straight outta The Church’s Starfish. Stream both tracks below.
Additionally, Corgan has shared the first two episodes for his new animated series In Ashes. The five-part series invites viewers on a “fantastical and surreal sci-fi adventure,” set to the soundtrack of Smashing Pumpkins’ new album. You can also find those below.
Pre-orders for CYR are currently on going.
