The Smashing Pumpkins Are Just “Being Beige”

Months after releasing their new album, The Smashing Pumpkins have released the music video for their “first” single off of the record, “Being Beige.

The video begins with images of what looks like the Moon with craters and all when all of a sudden close-ups of frontman, Billy Corgan, begin to be splice i between the random shots featured in the video.

In between shots of Corgan and his band members, we see more shots of the Moon, some twins who are set on fire, and other things. Honestly, we’re not sure what’s going on, but maybe this is what it looks like to be inside of Corgan’s head.

Check out the music video below.

“Being Beige” was featured on Moments to an Elegy, the second installation of their Teargarden by Kaleidyscope trilogy which began with 2012’s Oceania.

In a recent interview, Corgan revealed that the last installation of the Teargarden by Kaleidyscope album, Day for Night might be their last record as a band.

He also said that the sound for  Day for Night might be heading in a more rock sound; no more arty rock. He said that while listening to demos for the final record, he realized that he wanted to make an album that his teenage self would like.

Now that’s something we could get behind (and understand).
