Billy Corgan spilled the beans recently about what the heck the Smashing Pumpkins are up to. According to him – it’s a lot! The band has a double album on the way for 2020.

In a recent interview with Tennessean about his latest solo effort Cotillions, Corgan mentioned other projects he’s currently working on include a new Pumpkins record.

He said the band has recorded 21 new songs in Nashville for a “pretty different” double album. He continued saying it’s “the first real album” since the band’s reunion 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,” he continued. “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. ”

Supposed we can add Smashing Pumpkins to the list of legacy bands releasing albums this year!
