A.A. Williams shares cover of The Smashing Pumpkins “Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans”

Having last month announced the release of Songs From Isolation, a 9-track LP of cover versions out 12th February via Bella Union, today A.A. Williams has shared another new track from the album. “Porcelina Of The Vast Oceans” is a beguiling, piano and vocal cover of the Smashing Pumpkins classic.

Of the track Williams says: “Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness is such a nostalgic album for a generation of music-lovers, it was great to have a chance to work on one of the tracks for the Songs From Isolation project. The Pumpkins’ Porcelina has so many timbre changes and complexities that in this arrangement I wanted to hone in on the text, whilst leaving the piano to underpin everything with a dreamy positivity.
