Smashing Pumpkins’ singer, Billy Corgan, has confirmed the band are to release a new double album this year.
Corgan recently revealed that he and the band had 21 songs ready to go for a “pretty different” album, and has now confirmed that the new record, that they’re currently making in Nashville, will be a double album, and will come out in 2020, NME reports.
“In many ways, this is the first real album (since the reunion) where we’ve hunkered down and made a classic, “Let’s throw it all at the wall and see what happens” type of Pumpkins record,” he says, before revealing its length and arrival date. “I’ve been working on it for over a year. It currently is at 21 songs, and we’re going to release it as a double this year.
“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.”
