Smashing Pumpkins have just premiered a brand-new track, “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts),” featuring three of the band’s founding members in Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin.

Produced by Rick Rubin and featuring longtime Pumpkins’ guitarist Jeff Schroeder, the song follows “Solara” as the first two tracks recorded by the group’s original line-up—sans D’arcy Wretzky—in almost two decades.

Both “Solara” and “Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)” are set to appear on an eight-track album, Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun., which is expected to arrive on November 16.

The band are currently on the road in Europe, and will return to the US for more dates in November.
