Smashing Pumpkins are giving fans the first taste of their Monuments to an Elegy. The band shared the upcoming album's lead single "Being Beige" Monday via SoundCloud. 

Frontman Billy Corgan tells Rolling Stone he finds it hard to explain his songs.  But he says if there's honesty in "Being Beige," it's that "there's something amiss in our cosmos.  Yet still, we must love." 

Smashing Pumpkins' Monuments to an Elegy is scheduled to be released December 9th, with the follow-up album Day for Night due out sometime next year.  The two albums will complete the band's Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project, which began with the 2010 EP Songs for a Sailor.
