THEFUTUREEMBRACE.jpg TheFutureEmbrace is the debut solo album by Billy Corgan. With shoegaze and electronic elements, it deviated from most of his previous work with The Smashing Pumpkins. Arrangements followed an unusual process of splitting melodies based on their pitch and programming synths around them. The album featured guests Emilie Autumn, drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, and Robert Smith of The Cure who sang on the Bee Gees cover "ToLoveSomebody". The album garnered positive critical attention, with the Alternative Press calling it "some of the most engaging music of his career".
