The Smashing Pumpkins – “Let Me Give The World To You” (Adore Outtake Version)

By Michael Nelson / August 11, 2014

Back in April, Billy Corgan announced that the Smashing Pumpkins’ divisive 1998 LP, Adore, would be reissued with tons of bonus material, and now, we’ve got one of the album’s session’s unreleased songs, the Rick Rubin-produced “Let Me Give The World To You” (a different version of which eventually appeared on Machina II). It sounds way more like a Mellon Collie outtake than anything on the dour, gothy Adore, and in my opinion, that’s a good thing! It’s a really good song, something Billy Corgan used to crank out on an hourly basis back in the ’90s. Listen.

The Adore box set is out 9/23 and you can pre-order it here.
