Don’t get me wrong, we’re all Team Conan ‘round here (Coco was not harmed in the making of this post), but tonight notably marks the television premiere of music from the Smashing Pumpkins’ new 44-song album, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, not to mention the first time their new 20-year-old drummer has appeared on national television to my knowledge.
“Widow Wake My Mind” is from Billy Corgan and company’s first volume in the Smashing Pumpkins’ ongoing Teargarden by Kaleidyscope 44-song box set, dubbed Songs for a Sailor. I’m not sure where Corgan found this Shining twins-fronted backup chorus (a local church?), and we aren’t sold on the song quite yet, but this is a solid performance nonetheless.
Download and/or stream “Widow Wake My Mind,” as well as three other Songs for a Sailor, here, and check out the Tonight Show debut of the new SP lineup below:
