In fall of 2017, Billy Corgan embarked on a solo tour across North America that included stops in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, San Francisco and more. Billy released his second solo album, Ogilala. on October 13, 2017; it is available everywhere HERE via BMG. The album, produced by Rick Rubin and recorded at Shangri La studios in Malibu, CA, presents Corgan's distinctive vocals and melodies across a sparse, but rich palette of acoustic guitar, piano, and strings.
"Unfussy and intimate and, more importantly, Corgan owns the performance with his inimitable voice that few in the '90s would have figured for a romantic lead.” NPR
