Having premiered live at last year’s Bridge School Benefit, “A Song For A Son” in studio form debuts today on Spinner. Billy Corgan tells the site, “I think it’s got something to do about not having any kids and thinking about why I don’t have any kids.” It’s the first we’ve heard from the mercurial Pumpkin head’s forthcoming 44-track Teargarden By Kaleidyscope. Jessica Simpson gives it three thumbs up.
UPDATE: The free MP3 is now available…
