Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan—now going under his full name, William Patrick Corgan—has announced a new solo album, Ogilala, and shared a new song called “Aeronaut.”

Ogilala—which is set for an October 13 release via BMG—was produced by Rick Rubin. Its songs are, like “Aeronaut,” more spare than his work with Smashing Pumpkins, leaning far more heavily on acoustic guitar and piano, instrumentation-wise.

“Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick’s hands to take the music wherever he’d like,” Corgan said. “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.”

With the album, Corgan also announced that he would embark on a solo acoustic North American tour starting in October.

Or perhaps it’s because this season of “Game of Thrones” is nothing but battles to set up more battles. Or maybe it’s just because we use sports analogies for almost everything these days (just look at how we speak about politics). But sports-talk has dominated what’s been written and said about “Game of Thrones” […]
