New Pumpkins song released on Guitar Center CD

A previously unreleased Smashing Pumpkins song, “SuperChrist,” will be released on a CD featuring bands consisting of employees of Guitar Center. The album will be available from March 1 at Guitar Center outlets. The members of the Pumpkins chose the acts appearing on the compilation based on submissions from Guitar Center.

“SuperChrist” did not make the cut for the Pumpkins’ 2007 album “Zeitgeist,” but has been performed on tour. It will be the subject of a new video, premiering February 27 on MySpace.

“We didn’t feel we understood the song and thought playing it on tour would help us sort it out,” frontman Billy Corgan said in a statement.

In addition, the Pumpkins are planning a new round of North American tour dates, with details to be announced.
