The long-awaited Ogilala, produced by Rick Rubin, has a prevalence of acoustic guitar, piano and strings. This is William Patrick Corgan‘s second solo album, the first being TheFutureEmbrace which was released back in 2005.

Ogilala is available in various formats. As well as being available on CD, you can also get it on 180-gram gatefold vinyl. A limited edition blue vinyl can be purchased from his webstore, and a limited edition pink vinyl is available at select retailers.
