Smashing Pumpkins Are Working On ‘Another Big Album’!

July 30, 2021

Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder was recently a guest of Audio Ink Radio and talked to host Anne Erickson about the progress of the band’s next studio album!

Schroeder said, “We’re about halfway through working on another big album, which is, basically, I guess, a sequel to ‘Mellon Collie’ and ‘Machina’, so it’s the third in a trilogy — more of a concept-based album. And this one is 33 songs. We’ve been working for a long — almost, basically, the whole year on it. But we’re in the middle of real tracking and stuff right now. James and I are working out here in L.A. Drums are basically done, so Jimmy’s done his part. But Billy is working in Chicago, and I’m out here in L.A., and James is in L.A., so we’re plowing through it. That’ll probably take most of the rest of the year, ’cause it’s a big, sprawling thing.”

Schroeder added, “It’s been very challenging to work on a piece that big, because even for me as a guitar player, usually you’re always kind of working on things and you have a bunch of ideas to try on these new tracks,” he continued. “And then, after four songs, you’re like, ‘Okay, I’ve gotta come up with some other stuff.’ So, then you work hard and get through the first 11 songs, and you’re. like, ‘Oh, wait a second. That’s only the first act. I’ve got two more acts to go!’

Smashing Pumpkin’s latest album “Cyr” (Corgan produced) was released in November 2020. It appears the pandemic downtime has given the band a kick in the ass to get out more material.

New music. The silver lining to COVID.
