Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins has announced a new solo album under his full name, William Patrick Corgan, and shared its first single, "Aeronaut." Ogilala is due out October 13 via BMG. His has also announced some solo acoustic tour dates that will feature songs from across Corgan's career. Below is "Aeronaut," followed by the album's tracklist and cover art, as well as Corgan's upcoming tour dates

Rick Rubin produced the album, which was recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, Los Angeles. A press release says the album "presents Corgan's distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings."

Corgan had this to say about the album in a press release: "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. 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."
