The almost-original line-up of the Smashing Pumpkins have revealed a new single, “Knights of Malta.”
The track opens with violins accompanied by backing vocals drowning in wet reverb, before Corgan interjects with “We’re gonna make this happen / I’m gonna fly forever / We’re gonna ride that rainbow.”
This record, which will be the Pumpkins’ tenth full-length, marks the first time in nearly 20 years founding members Jimmy Chamberlain and James Iha have returned to the ensemble. However, original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky will not be involved.
Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. is out November 16. Hear “Knights of Malta” below:
