Smashing Pumpkins Recording, Doing The Fandango

It’s been over a year since Billy Corgan announced to the world (via full page ads in Chicago Tribune and Sun-Times).

My heart is in The Smashing Pumpkins. For a year now I have walked around with a secret, a secret I chose to keep. But now I want you to be among the first to know that I have made plans to renew and revive The Smashing Pumpkins.

Now, according to the singer’s website they’ve hit the studio: “The Smashing Pumpkins are currently in the recording studio with legendary producer Roy Thomas Baker (Queen, The Cars, The Darkness), at work on their first new album since 1999.”

Baker produced “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Could be wild. Of course Billy’s Smashing Pumpkins are now just him and Jimmy Chamberlin. But James and D’arcy are “good people” so ya never know.
