So that's what the Smashing Pumpkins were teasing (or at least part of it). A couple weeks ago, the band started five countdown clocks, with the first set to expire on August 28th. Well, the day has arrived, and along with it came two new songs: "Cyr" and "The Colour Of Love." "Cyr is dystopic folly," frontman Billy Corgan explained in a statement, "one soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn't possible with faith." So what are the other four clocks counting down? Along with the new music, Smashing Pumpkins officially revealed they're working on a new album. The next clock is set to go off on September 18.
