A Perfect Circle guitarist and songwriter Billy Howerdel has unveiled the debut single from his new eponymous solo project, Poison Flowers.

The track follows a teaser clip that landed two weeks ago, and it seems this is a deeply personal project for the songwriter. Howerdel says the material harks back to some of his first musical loves, and he’s also reported to have recorded all the instruments, with the exception of drums, which have been left to longtime collaborator Josh Freese.
