William Patrick Corgan Announces Ogilala – October 13th

GRAMMY® Award winning, acclaimed singer-songwriter and Smashing Pumpkins frontman, William Patrick Corgan announced that his second solo album Ogilala will be released on October 13, 2017 via BMG. The album, produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, presents Corgan’s distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings. Pre-orders for Ogilala are available now HERE.

“For as long as I can remember the delineation point between songs I wrote for myself and songs I’d pen for whatever band was something I couldn’t explain. And it remains so, for they all feel quite personal to me, no matter their time or era. The lone difference on songs for Ogilala is that they seemed to want little in the way of adornment,” said Corgan. “Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick’s hands to take the music wherever he’d like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction.”

Corgan also released the album’s striking first track, “Aeronaut,” which is available now HERE and on all DSPs. Fans who pre-order Ogilala will receive an immediate download of “Aeronaut.” Ogilala will be available digitally as well as physically on CD and 180 gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition opaque blue vinyl will be available directly from Corgan’s web store and a limited edition pink vinyl will be available at select indie retailers.
