Smashing Pumpkins Announce New Album ‘Atum’, Release ‘Beguiled’ Single

September 26, 2022

Smashing Pumpkins has released a new single, “Beguiled”, which you’ll find on their forthcoming new collection of music, “Atum: A Rock Opera In Three Acts”. The 33-track collection, pronounced “autumn”, is being billed as a sequel to 1995’s “Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness” and 2000’s “Machina/The Machine of God”.

The collection will be released as three 11-track “acts”; like a three-act rock opera. Act 1 is being released on November 15, 2022. Act 2 on January 31, 2023. And Act 3, along with a special-edition box set featuring all 33 album tracks plus 10 additional unreleased songs, is out April 21, 2023.

It took the band four years to write and record “Atum: A Rock Opera In Three Acts”.

One thing you can’t say about the band is they aren’t ambitious.

Meanwhile, the Pumpkins start their fall 2022 North American “Spirits On Fire” tour, with  Jane’s Addiction on October 2 in Dallas, Texas!

Which Smashing Pumpkins album is their best?
