Billy Corgan reveals titles of eight new Smashing Pumpkins songs

Smashing Pumpkins have revealed that they’re heading back into the studio to add the finishing touches to their long-awaited ‘reunion’ album, which of course has now been music's worst kept secret thanks to the spat between frontman Billy Corgan and former bassist D'Arcy Wretzky, who will not be joining the band for the recording of the new material. But the rest of the band seems to be powering ahead as Corgan just shared the titles of eight new Smashing Pumpkins songs.

Recently, it was confirmed that when three-fourths of Smashing Pumpkins’ founding lineup — frontman Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin — hit the road this summer for their “Shiny And Oh So Bright” reunion tour this summer, they’ll only be playing music from their first five albums and none of the new material.

But Corgan has been teasing the new music for a while now, and now, he’s released the names of eight songs from the upcoming untitled album. In an Instagram post on Monday, Corgan said that the band was 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, which are as follows:

“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, which has been the key reason behind the delay of the Pumpkins album, which will be cut and mixed by legendary rock producer Rick Rubin.

The accompanying photo appears to be of a quote that Corgan came up with himself, seemingly in reference to the recent spat with D’arcy Wretzky, as mentioned above.
