“It’s insane how much work there is”
Smashing Pumpkins have revealed they have “hundreds” of finished songs ready to release in their archives.
Three-quarters of the band’s classic line-up reunited earlier this year to record a new album and embark on the Shiny And Oh So Bright tour. Only D’Arcy Wretzky is missing from the band’s original line-up.
Frontman Billy Corgan, guitarist James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin appeared on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Apple Music earlier today (September 17). During the chat, Corgan revealed the band have a wealth of completed music they’ve been sitting on.
“And now that I’m really excited by the re-rise of the vinyl record shop and the fact that there is there is this beautiful balance now between vinyl releases and streaming services, we’re going to just start unloading the archives and we have archives for decades,” he said. MORE
