Here’s “Birch Grove”:

And “Anno Satana,” the fifth and sixth songs shared thus far from the record:

These songs join the first four shared from Cyr. Here’s “Cyr”:

“The Colour of Love”:

“Confessions of a Dopamine Addict”:

and “Wrath”:

The record combines the forces of Corgan, guitarist James Iha, drummer Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder, and will be the band’s first release since Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun. in 2018, which came after the band’s big semi-reunion tour that reconnected Corgan, Iha and Chamberlin after years apart.

Corgan referred to “Cyr” in a statement as “dystopic folly,” “one soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn’t possible with faith.”

With the premieres of the songs above, that’s now six out of the album’s 20 that have been made available early. The track listing:
