The Smashing Pumpkins Start Work On Two Albums

by Paul Cashmere on March 26, 2014

in New Music,News

The Smashing Pumpkins have signed a recording deal with Sony Music’s BMG label and will release two new albums in 2015.

Billy Corgan has announced the titles for the two records are ‘Monuments To An Elegy’ and ‘Day For Night’ and indicated the sound will be a return to the classic Smashing Pumpkins of the ‘Mellon Collie’ days.

“For those interested in sound, think: ‘guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars;’ but more so on the epic side of things than say, grossly metallic,” Corgan said in his announcement.

It is early days the albums. The sessions kicked off this week. “Recording sessions begin today, as plenty of songs have been written and ready to go,” he said. “Manning the boards will be producer Howard Willing, with whom I first had the pleasure of working with during the ‘Adore’ sessions. We expect a single out by year’s end”.

Smashing Pumpkins will update fans on the progress of the record regularly via their website. “Additionally, this stands as the initial post on a new nexus: The Panopticon, which through its simplicity should better address the speed of modern life. A continuing feature, items regarding each day’s recording will be shared that same evening, with song titles, lyrics, poetic impressions, pictures, sound clips, studio gear and the like offered for a circuitous, bird’s eye view of the process as it unfolds,” Corgan said.

The most recent Smashing Pumpkins album was ‘Oceania’ in 2012. It reached number 2 in the USA and number 8 in Australia.
