Jessica Simpson got to jam with Billy Corgan and so could you! Hipsters United reports that a recent studio collaboration between the Smashing Pumpkins ringleader and the former Newlyweds star, which was well-documented on Twitter and elsewhere, has finally hit the internet. It’s definitely more of a Simpson track than a Corgan one, for sure, but I’m pretty certain that’s Corgan on the guitar solo at least (much lower in the mix for pop radio of course). Now you could download the song for free from Jessica Simpson Headquarters, but if you’d rather not join her mailing list, Pop Sugar is streaming “Who We Are” here.
In other Smashing Pumpkins news, remember how 19-year-old drummer Mike Byrne snagged the coveted spot behind the skins after an audition to replace Jimmy Chamberlin last year? Well, now Corgan needs a bassist and keyboardist, as well.
“We were lucky enough to find drummer Mike Byrne through an open audition process,” Corgan said (via Spin). “So why not open the doors again to anyone who might be interested for the bass or keyboard position. As you can see from our past and present, age, race, or a person’s background is not an issue. Everyone is truly welcome to audition.”
