The Smashing Pumpkins have released two additional tracks ahead of their 20-track full-length studio release, Cyr, due out Friday, November 27. 

‘Confessions of a Dopamine Addict’ and ‘Wrath’ feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder.

The new tracks come with episode’s 1 and 2 of ‘In Ashes,’ The Smashing Pumpkins new 5-part animated series, created by Billy Corgan, and animated by Deep Sky. Inviting viewers on a fantastical and surreal sci-fi adventure, set to the soundtrack of the latest sonic offerings from the band, ‘As The Crow Flies’ and ‘Inspirations, Aspirations’ are available via the band’s YouTube channel.

Corgan says “The original story is something I’ve written and although it’s (mostly) lighthearted, ‘IN ASHES’ does address many things we face each day. That is… if… we live in dystopia, or paradise, or both. The choice, some say, is yours; and could even be a quantum issue
