A week before the release of their new album, CYR, Smashing Pumpkins have shared two more songs: “Purple Blood” and “Dulcet in E.”
“Purple Blood” is classic Smashing Pumpkins with crunchy guitars, big booming drums, and atmospheric synths. “Dulcet in E” is steeped in pop, but has a larger than life feeling ala Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.
Listen to the tracks below.
Previously, the band shared “Anno Satana,” “Birch Grove,” “Confessions of a Dopamine Addict,” “Wrath, “Cyr,” and “The Colour of Love” from the upcoming album. In addition to new music, Smashing Pumpkins have also released the first three episodes of their animated series, In Ashes.
“The original story is something I’ve written and although it’s (mostly) lighthearted, In Ashes does address many things we face each day,” Corgan said in a statement about the series he created, which is animated by Deep Sky. “That is… if… we live in dystopia, or paradise, or both. The choice, some say, is yours; and could even be a quantum issue.”
The Smashing Pumpkins new album, CYR, comes out November 27th via Sumerian Records.
