Teargarden by Kaleidyscope is the set of new songs currently being recorded by the American alternative rock band The Smashing Pumpkins, to comprise the band's eighth full studio album, in a combined form of separate single music downloads and a series of physical EPs, released exclusively.
Formally announced by the frontman Billy Corgan on September 16, 2009, the 44-song concept album will be released over the Internet, from the band's official website for free, one song at a time. Each time a set of four tracks has been made available for download, it will then be made available for purchase in two formats: a physical limited edition EP on CD and digital format. All eleven EPs will culminate as a box set with extended versions of the initial EPs. Corgan has described Teargarden by Kaleidyscope as "a new kind of album, an album you can hear as it's being made."
The following are the songs that were made available to download so far:
- "A Song for a Son" – 6:03 (Made available December 8, 2009)
