Billy Corgan reveals titles of eight new Smashing Pumpkins songs

on February 20, 2018, 10:08am

When three-fourths of Smashing Pumpkins’ founding lineup — frontman Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin — hit the road for their “Shiny And Oh So Bright” reunion tour this summer, they’ll be playing music from their first five albums. However, Corgan has also been teasing new music from the group, and he’s now revealed the titles of eight new recordings.

In an Instagram post on Monday, Corgan said that he, Iha, and Chamberlin were returning to Malibu next week “to sing shiny new lyrics and cut final guitar overdubs” for eight songs. He concluded the post by listing out the titles of all the tracks: “Alienation”, “Travels”, “Silvery Sometimes”, “Solara”, “With Sympathy”, “Marchin’ On”, “Knights of Malta”, and “Seek and You Shall Destroy”.

Corgan also mentioned that he has “between 16 and 18 songs” for an upcoming solo album, a follow-up to last years Ogilala. Read the full post below. The accompanying photo appears to be of a quote that Corgan came up with himself, seemingly in reference to the recent drama involving D’arcy Wretzky.

 

Corgan, Iha, and Chamberlin haven’t recorded together since The Pumpkins’ 2000 double album, Machina. Rick Rubin is reportedly producing the forthcoming material.
