Billy Corgan Collaborator & Acclaimed Solo Artist Sierra Swan Releases Genre-Bending EP

On the heels of the successful launch of her latest hit single and video "I Want All Of My Shit Back", renowned multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and celebrated music collaborator Sierra Swan, has unveiled details for her much-anticipated six-song EP. The renowned artist, who is best known for her work with The Smashing Pumpkins Frontman Billy Corgan, Cold, Dollshead and as a solo performer, pre-released Tangerines Friday, May 14th on Bandcamp.
Tangerines will be available on all digital streaming platforms on May 17, 2021.

Describing the EP as “a journey, with each song completely different from the next but each celebrating freedom in a fun, almost instinctual way,” Swan wrote, recorded and produced all but “Peach” (written by Corgan) in her home studio during Covid as a way to “escape and provide a sanctuary amidst the chaos.”


“I knew when I started writing this EP that it was not going to be very organic. I already made that decision based on my equipment and the necessity to work mainly in my headphones,” said Swan. “I was also just not in a singer/songwriter kind of mood. I wanted to have fun, considering the world around me seemed to be the complete opposite at the time.” 


The result is a multi-dimensional, eclectic collection of songs that range from the edgy, dance-pop vibes of “I Want All Of My Shit Back” and the hook-laden title track “Tangerines” to the ethereal beauty of Corgan’s piano ballad “Peach,” on which Swan enlisted LA’s esteemed Section Quartet to perform. 


“The vibe of this EP is definitely ‘the world is changing right before your eyes.’ It is technicolor AND black and white all at once,” said Swan. “Everything and nothing is happening at the same time. The record sounds like a woman in her forties going through a pandemic with two kids and a husband, wanting to escape to the basement and have a little fun while venting about the world’s problems. All of that energy is in this EP.”


While sonically different from her past five albums, Swan’s signature, smoldering voice, which Corgan has hailed as “the most pure [he’s] ever heard,” is as palpable as ever. As is her ability to transport listeners on an emotional voyage that ventures into depths that few artists dare to go.
