Billy Corgan is going to release his new solo album soon (maybe)

Smashing Pumpkins will tour next year, too, apparently.
Smashing Pumpkins’ Billy Corgan has released some more information about his next solo album, which has been in the work for ages.

Posting a video live on Facebook – after lots of wrestling gubbins – he reveals:

“I have talked a little bit about how I’m making a solo record, I haven’t talked about who I made the solo record with – I actually made the solo record with Rick Rubin, my longtime friend and one of the greatest producers in the history of rock’n’roll.

“We finished all the basic recordings. I think we recorded about 12 or 13 songs. I’m set to go back out to the west coast at some point to finish up a few things, but for the most part the record is done. I don’t have a due date on when that’s going to be coming out.”

And as for Smashing Pumpkins – “Is the band reuniting? I don’t know. But we’re definitely making plans for next year, definitely making plans to tour next year under the name Smashing Pumpkins. Who will be on stage, we shall see.”
