He posted a live Facebook video performing the band’s song “Sweet Sweet,” a song that he hasn’t played with the Smashing Pumpkins in 24 years since a 1994 show in Carson, California. “Sweet Sweet” is a record from the album Siamese Dream, which was released in 1993.
He streamed the video from Madame Zuzu’s tea house that he owns in Chicago, playing the piano while reading lyrics off an iPad. Prior to performing “Sweet Sweet,” he streamed “Smiley” for the first time since 1993, and “I Fall” was also played for the first time in almost 20 years.
The promotion of his new album includes live streaming as well as a silent film set to new music from the album.
