Smashing Pumpkins have released a new video for "Solara," the first Smashing Pumpkins track in 18 years to feature original members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin.

The bizarre new clip, directed by Nick Koenig, features Corgan locked up in a strange prison, which features people tanning in the dark and a mime giving birth to an imaginary baby while being guarded by heavily armed mime guards. He escapes, walking down a street with fathers walking their children on leashes, muscled men sunbathing while bugs crawl all over them and a group of goths enjoying a barbecue with glasses of milk. The clip ends with Corgan choosing to return to the asylum instead.

Rick Rubin produced the track, which also features longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
