AUDIO: New Smashing Pumpkins Track “Solara”

The new Smashing Pumpkins song “Solara” marks an incredible achievement for Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin being the first track they’ve released together in over 18 years.

“Solara,” itself, is a chugging force that’ll likely find itself alongside the band’s iconic hits when they hit the road later this summer on the “Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour.”  (See full list of tour dates below.)

Fortunately, fans won’t have to wait too long to hear the song live.  The Smashing Pumpkins will be appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon  and performing “Solara.”  So, set your DVRs now!

The Smashing Pumpkins - Solara

The first recording in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin. Recorded in Malibu, CA at Shangri La Studios with producer Rick Rubin and longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder. available everywhere: http://smarturl.it/solara instagram.com/smashingpumpkins/ facebook.com/smashingpumpkins/ twitter.com/SmashingPumpkin/
