Billy Corgan, as frontman for The Smashing Pumpkins, made twisted, abrasive rock. But within that project he always had a soft side, expressed in quieter, acoustic songs sprinkled throughout the Pumpkins' catalog. Now the singer is back with a new solo album of beautiful ballads made entirely of piano, acoustic guitar and strings. He's calling it Ogilala and releasing it under the name William Patrick Corgan later this fall. We've got the first single from the album on this week's show, the gorgeously orchestrated "Aeronaut." Full playlist: 1. Loney Dear: "Sum," 2. Flikka: "Ellington," 3. Wolf Alice: "Don't Delete The Kisses," 4. William Patrick Corgan: "Aeronaut," 5. Mavis Staples: "If All I Was Was Black," 6. Jackie Shane: "Cruel Cruel World"view more
