The Smashing Pumpkins have recorded a new song for the
soundtrack of the upcoming Batman and Robin film entitled "The End is
the Beginning is the End."
The song features former NIN member Chris
Vrenna and will be the first single from the album. The Pumpkins are scheduled
to convene with the movie's director, Joel Schumacher, next month, to film a
video for the song.
The fourth Batman caper features yet another new Dark
Knight, this time ER's George Clooney, with side-kick Chris O'Donnell, Batgirl
Alicia Silverstone, Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy and a silver-flecked Arnold
Schwarzenegger as Mr. Freeze.
