The Smashing Pumpkins are back with Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, a 44-song epic released single by single for free via Soundcloud.

The latest single, “A Stitch in Time” features acoustic guitar, electronic elements, and sitar. Just don’t ask Billy Corgan what it all means. Via press release he says the following, “I have a hard time saying in most cases what inspires a song—some of them just pour out of me like salt and I feel like a custodian of a spirit I don’t fully understand but certainly can feel. The closest answer I have is that it’s a protest song—what I am protesting I’m not sure but it has something to do with real inner freedom and the consequence of what it means to be free. The song came in during a stream of Pumpkins concert in those wee, still hours between soundcheck and the show. The lyrics came just as surprisingly fast as the music, and the whole process took about 20 minutes. I recorded it on my phone, and so for a year it was the only document I had of the song. But the song stuck with me and I put it in my back pocket as something worth coming back to later. When I drew up the list of the first 4 songs to record this one easily made the cut because I think it has a signifying effect of what the album stands for, not so much musically but energetically and thematically.”
