Billy Corgan is releasing a new short film called Pillbox to accompany his new Rick Rubin-produced album Ogilala. Watch the trailer below.

The short film is to accompany his new album Ogilala, which is also its soundtrack.

“I thought it was a different approach to listening to an album, to watch it in essence with a related, albeit non-linear, silent movie,” Corgan said of the film and album’s connection. “Art is art. And together the two pieces create a work unto itself.”

A one minute teaser has been revealed, featuring a bizarre sequence of clips, including black-and-white footage of a soldier getting married then heading off to fight in World Word I, haunting news reel footage, which then shifts to colour images of some strange dream-like fantasies.

Watch it below. Ogilala is out October 13 via BMG and was produced by none other than Rick Rubin.
