Watch: Billy Corgan reveals that the new Smashing Pumpkins album is ‘Pretty Different’

The new album will be a follow-up to 2018's 'Shiny and Oh So Bright'

Smashing Pumpkins’ Frontman Billy Corgan has shared details on the upcoming album. In an interview with Nashville’s 102.9 The Buzz, Corgan mentions that the band has been working on a new album, and it’s going to be “pretty different.”

“It’s currently 21 songs,” Corgan explains. “We’ve been working on it for over a year. It’s pretty different, in a good way, I think. Everyone who’s heard it likes it a lot, so that’s a good sign.”

Corgan then went on to say that the band is planning on going on a road tour. “We’re going to do some touring, playing a big festival in Atlanta, I think in April or May, Shaky Knees,” he reveals. “I’m not sure we’re playing Nashville this year. Actually I think we might — I might be giving a secret away — we might be doing a little surprise-y gig soon.”
