    The Smashing Pumpkins will release Teargarden by Kaleidyscope Vol II "The Solstice Bear" on November 23 as a four-song, physical only EP. Despite the oddly punctuated, word soup and somewhat self-indulgent title, the EP will also be offered as a deluxe, 12-inch vinyl picture disk, which should scintillate all your collectors and vinyl whores out there.

    The four songs on the EP are "The Fellowship," "Freak," "Tom Tom" and "Spangled" with an unreleased B-side track, "Cottonwood Symphony." The lid covering the 12- inch box is a metallic/foil wallpaper motif, with a 1970's design by The Flavor Paper Co. It will be released in limited quantities globally, making it very, very special, which could jack up its value in the future.

    This EP, whose title is too cumbersome for me to keep writing, is the second EP to emerge from the band's in-progress 44-song project TEARGARDEN BY KALEIDYSCOPE, from which songs are being released online, one at a time for free, along with four-song physical EPs being issued along the way.)

    Are you psyched about this new Smashing Pumpkins EP?
