Right now, the Smashing Pumpkins are enjoying a mini-renaissance, now that Billy Corgan has released Oceania, his best-received album in about two decades. So it makes sense that James Iha, Corgan’s former Pumpkins wingman, has chosen this moment to reemerge as a solo artist. Iha’s last solo album was 1998’s Let It Come Down, but he’s just now following it up with his solo sophomore LP Look To The Sky. And right now, the delicate, fuzzed-out early track “To Who Knows Where” is streaming at Rolling Stone. To hear it, head over here.
Look To The Sky is out 9/18, and it’s actually been out in Japan since March.
