The Smashing Pumpkins – A Song For A Son

The Smashing Pumpkins releases a new track off their new album “Teargarden by Kaleidyscope”, the 44-song concept album will be released for free over the Internet, one song at a time…

This is what the Chicagotribune has to say about the new song:

“A Song for a Son” is a slow-build ballad, opening with pensive voice and keyboards and then gradually incorporating guitar, bass and drums in stately progression. It builds to a guitar solo, then falls back, finally winding up with carnival-like organ. The opaque lyrics are replete with images of sailors, tailors, unborn sons, space invaders and Icarus-like flame-outs. You want classic Corgan? Try the line about the "blown-out bird, the kind that don't return to the nest.”  - chicagotribune.com
