In anticipation of their upcoming album Monuments to an Elegy, The Smashing Pumpkins have shared another new single, titled "One and All," which you can check out below. Fans of the Pumpkins will not be disappointed, as the song has a darkly metallic quality reminiscent of their 1995 opus Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.
"I basically sang the whole song the first time I wrote it," frontman Billy Corgan told The Huffington Post about "One and All." "It had written itself."

Later in his Huffington Post interview, Corgan asserted that he has no plans to tour behind the 20th anniversary of Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness, saying that he is "not interested in promoting nostalgia." Despite this, he says he does plan to take the Smashing Pumpkins out on tour in support of Monuments to an Elegy, set for release Dec. 9.
"One and All" is the second song to be shared from Monuments to an Elegy, following "Being Beige" from two weeks ago. The album will be the Smashing Pumpkins's 10th studio album overall, their first since 2012's Oceania. Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee recorded the drums for the album.
Both Oceania and Monuments to an Elegy are part of the Smashing Pumpkins's ongoing Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, a massive 44-song concept album that has been released in pieces since 2009, starting with Vol. 1: Songs for a Sailor. The project will conclude next year with the release of the Smashing Pumpkins's 11th studio album Day for Night.
"I don't think I'm going to make albums the old-fashioned way," Corgan wrote in a statement back when he began the project. "My thinking is that if I focus on one song at a time I would approach them as beautiful, distinct paintings that would each require the attention they deserve."
