Smashing Pumpkins just released a new music video for their single 'Solara' and it is utterly Bizarre. As Billy Corgen is held captive in some type of asylum you see inmates playing connect four with only black pieces, a man pouring milk all over himself and even a mime giving birth to an imaginary child. The video gets creepier as Billy escapes the building walking through a sunny suburb street full of weird people, soo weird that he decides to go back to the asylum.
'Solara' marks the first Smashing Pumpkins track in 18 years to feature original members Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin. Rick Rubin produced the track, which also features longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
