Flashback Friday: Walking Shade

WalkingShade

The first and only single from Billy Corgan’s solo album, TheFutureEmbrace, was the track Walking Shade.

Billy said in a Blue Room Interview that “(The record) was a little too straight-laced, in my eyes. Because of the nature of the electronics and the way I wrote, it lacked a little bit of kick, so I thought it’d just be fun to write a dumb song, so I wrote ‘Walking Shade.’ I don’t mean it offensively when I say it’s a dumb song, I think a lot of great songs are dumb songs.”
