The Smashing Pumpkins New Album ‘Cyr’ Details

September 20, 2020

Have you heard? The new Smashing Pumpkins album is a DOUBLE album! The 20 song, singer Billy Corgan produced “Cyr” is being released on November 27 and follows up 2018’s “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.” The below songs “Cyr” and “The Colour of Love” are album singles.

Morgan said, “‘Cyr’ is dystopic folly. One soul against the world sort of stuff, set against a backdrop of shifting loyalties and sped up time. To me it stands as both hopeful and dismissive of what is and isn’t possible with faith.”

If a new album isn’t enough, the band announced red “In Ashes”, a five-part animated series written by Corgan. Episodes one and two — “As The Crow Flies” and “Inspirations, Aspirations” — are being released September 25.

Their last album “Shiny And Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.” was the first Pumpkins album in 18 years to feature founding members Corgan, Jimmy Chamberlin and James Iha (and longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder).

Corgan spoke to the Tennessean earlier this year, “When we got back together with James, we went in with Rick Rubin and did eight songs. It was put out as a formal album, but I said at the time — and I did mean it — in my eyes, it wasn’t an album. We didn’t approach it like we’ve approached every other album we’d ever done, which is more like making a movie. In many ways, this is the first real album [since the reunion] where we’ve hunkered down and made a classic, ‘Let’s throw it all at the wall and see what happens’ type of Pumpkins record. I’ve been working on it for over a year.”

Do you think this new Pumpkins album will be well received? Do they have what it takes to top the Billboard’s 200 album chart?
