The Smashing Pumpkins Bring "G.L.O.W." Exclusively to "Guitar Hero: World Tour"

September 2, 2008 3:05 PM ET

The Smashing Pumpkins' new song "G.L.O.W." will make its debut exclusively via Guitar Hero: World Tour. "G.L.O.W." will be packaged with two other SP songs — "1979" and "The Everlasing Gaze" — as a three-song download for the newest installation of the Guitar Hero series, due out this fall. Billy Corgan will also appear as a playable character when users attempt to tackle Siamese Dream's "Today." No word yet on how non-gaming fans will be able to download the song. The "G.L.O.W." acquisition is the latest weapon in the battle of Guitar Hero vs. Rock Band 2, with GH thus far recruiting new instruments, Metallica's Death Magnetic and Jimi Hendrix while RB has countered with "Guns n' Roses' Shackler's Revenge," full album downloads and the "biggest soundtrack ever."

“Promiscuous”

Nelly Furtado with Timbaland | 2006

This club-oriented single featuring Timbaland, who produced Nelly Furtado's third album, Loose, was Furtado’s sexy return after the Canadian singer's exploration of her Portuguese heritage on Folklore. "In the studio, initially I didn’t know if I could do it, 'cause Timbaland wrote that chorus," Furtado said. "I'm like, 'That's cool, but I don't know if I'm ready to do full-out club.'" The flirty lyrics are a dance between a guy and girl, each knowing they will end up in bed together but still playing the game. "Tim and I called it 'The BlackBerry Song,' she said, "because everything we say in the song you could text-message to somebody."
