The Smashing Pumpkins have released the ninth installment in their epic 44 track Teargarden By Kaleidoscope project in the form of “Lightning Strikes,” which is available for download below.
Frontman Billy Corgan announced that the song was originally written for California's The Electric Prunes, who's bassist Mark Tulin just passed away. “I found an element in it that suggested a bigger picture, and unfortunately I stole it back from them. The lyric in my mind combines the isolation of modern life with the need for a never ending romantic story." The song is dedicated to Tulin and all of those currently affected in Japan.
