In a tweet last night, Billy Corgan wrote, “Started work on a pair of albums today”. Whether he was referring to work of his own or someone else’s (Sierra Swan), we are uncertain. Billy mentioned months ago that The Smashing Pumpkins were considering releasing two albums, with one that would be “focused on the world that needs everything to be perfect and maybe one that would be more raw and done the old way.”
Even though Nicole Fiorentino is currently working with her band The Cold and Lovely and Mike Byrne is doing a few shows with Bearcubbin’, it’s not unusual for Billy to begin work on Pumpkins music on his own.
But whether this new music is Pumpkins music or something else, only time will tell.
