In 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.

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.

Billy Corgan is a singer, songwriter, producer, and frontman of celebrated alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. Formed in Chicago, IL in 1988, the band released their heralded debut album Gish in 1991 and found mainstream success with 1993’s 4x multi-platinum Siamese Dream and 1995’s 10x multi-platinum Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. Following the band’s 2000 dissolution, Corgan helmed the alternative rock band Zwan before releasing his debut solo album TheFutureEmbrace and reforming The Smashing Pumpkins in 2005.
