One track at a time...and there could be 44 of them

Billy Corgan and his merry band of Smashing Pumpkins will give their new album away for free.

The band are planning on giving away Teargarden By Kaleidyscope track-by-track which, considering it boasts 44 songs, could be a lengthy process.

Billy Corgan said: "I want no limitations on what I can, and will do. I think the size and shape of the traditional album is just morphing into something much more in the moment."

The band will also give away 11 four track EPs in the future, with Corgan adding: "Four songs at a time will mean I can give my heart over to the music fully without giving away my now happy life."
