Smashing Pumpkins’ William Patrick Corgan “Aeronaut” (BMG) – Engineered by Dana Nielsen

GPS | News

William Patrick Corgan — known by most as The Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan — has released his latest single “Aeronaut”. The ballad is from his forthcoming Rick Rubin-produced solo album “Ogilala” (BMG), engineered by GPS client Dana Nielsen. As with many Rick Rubin productions, things are stripped down to their essential elements to allow the artist to shine through. Dana Nielsen – who has a longstanding working relationship with Rubin, including projects for Weezer, The Avett Brothers, Jake Bugg – was selected for engineering tasks at Shangri La Studios in Malibu, CA.

“Having written the songs for voice and guitar, I put myself in Rick’s hands to take the music wherever he’d like. Normally I would have done more, and tinkered more on production, but rather Rick put the onus on me to deliver at a molecular level via live takes. The rest was simply a reaction.” – Corgan

The album is due October 13th and is available for pre-order. Listen to the song below:
