Published Jul 18, 2013This month, Smashing Pumpkins will reissue their singles box set The Aeroplane Flies High in expanded form. It's out on July 23 through Virgin/UMe, and you can preview it via an acoustic version of "1979."
The full-band version of this song from Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness is one of Smashing Pumpkins' most recognizable tracks. This archival take strips away the drum loops, vocal samples and electric guitars and leaves it as a soft, unaccompanied campfire number that emphasizes just how great this song is.
