The Smashing Pumpkins – A Song for A Son

Songforason

Since Chamberlin’s departure as drummer after 2007’s disappointing “Zeitgiest” Billy has pulled in 19 year old drummer whiz kid Mike Byrne and then said that they would be releasing all the songs from their forthcoming album, one by one, completely free. Way to hype it, kids. So this is the first fruit from their collective labour, and well, its one of the better songs from latter day Pumpkins work. Regardless of what you think of Corigans broken vocals or his outright arrogance you have to accept his talent, after all he did play every instrument on his last album bar drums, so y’know, that’s something, right? You can listen above now for what classes as a SP ballad now.
