Waiting for new music from The Smashing Pumpkins?? Well, the wait shouldn't be much longer! Frontman Billy Corgan says a new album is coming this year, and it'll be a double album!
Corgan confirmed the big news in a new interview with Tennessean saying that the recently reunited (mostly) original lineup will all be on it, and it'll be a lot more of a "risk" than their 2018 release Shiny And Oh So Bright Volume 1.
He said the band recorded 21 new songs for the album and said it's this iteration of the band's “first real album” because they “hunkered down and made a classic ‘Let’s throw it all at the wall and see what happens’ type of Pumpkins record.”
“This is the first album since the album that came out in 2000,Machina, where me, James and Jimmy worked on something for a very long time. It’s got a greater conceptual base, and it’s probably a wider swath of music. The last one was kind of like, “Let’s just jump in, record some stuff real fast, and let it be what it is… so I’m excited about this, because we’re kind of back in the lane of taking a risk, and trying to bring something new to the table, as opposed to just aping what we’re known for. ”
Well, this is exciting news! Can't wait to hear what this one sounds like.
