The Smashing Pumpkins – “The Fellowship” & “Jesus Needs A Hit”
The Smashing Pumpkins contributed a song to the upcoming Vampire Diaries soundtrack. The CW show is about a teenage girl who unknowingly falls in love with a vampire, but can’t help herself even though he says it’s too dangerous, and then there’s a love triangle, etc. etc. “The Fellowship”‘s “us vs. them” lyrics fit well (the keyboard lead doesn’t, but it’s the best part). The song will also appear as part of the Smashing Pumpkins’s Teargarden By Kaleidyscope EP: The Solstice (“Widow Wake My Mind,” “A Song For A Son,” and “A Stitch In Time” are also part of the massive 44-track project).
Since the world is a vampire, the show’s title is redundant. So let’s just call it the Normal Diaries. Listen:
The Normal Diaries Soundtrack is out 10/12 via Virgin. You’ll also find this song on The Pumpkins’ Teargarden bB Kaleidyscope Vol. II: The Solstice Bare EP.
UPDATE: Corgan debuted another tune, “Jesus Needs A Hit,” in Paris last week. H/T CoS.
