Billy Corgan teases video for new Smashing Pumpkins song, “Solara”

On his Instagram, Corgan has shared a still from an upcoming video for a song called “Solara,” which he says is “coming soon.” The still shows what looks like Corgan sitting on a bench next to a large birdcage.

“Solara” is one of the titles for eight new Smashing Pumpkins songs that Corgan revealed back in February. A month later, he announced a plan to release two Pumpkins EPs, with the first single due out in May. The arrival of “Solara” seems to confirm that timeline.

Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin will embark on their Shiny and Oh So Bright tour beginning July 12 in Glendale, Arizona.
