Nineties kids, prepare to get all misty-eyed. The founding members of Smashing Pumpkins—minus D’arcy Wretzky—have just premiered a new track, “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts).”
Produced by Rick Rubin and features longtime Pumpkins collaborator Jeff Schroeder, the track is a throwback to the band’s glory days. Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin have recorded a mellow, mid-tempo number that’s reminiscent of the poppier hits on 2000’s Machina/The Machines of God.
“Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” follows “Solara,” a pummeling tune that served as a de facto announcement of the group’s reformation. Both are set to appear on Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun., an eight-track album that arrives November 16.
