The Smashing Pumpkins return with two new tracks, ‘Cyr’ and ‘The Colour Of Love,’ out on Sumerian Records. Recorded in Chicago and produced by Corgan, the new tracks come with the news of a forthcoming studio album in the works with founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin, with longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
“Cyr is dystopic folly,” front-man Billy Corgan reveals, “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.”
Both tracks are heavy on the synths, where ‘Cyr’ has a disco vibe with female vocals joining Corgan’s distinctive whine.,”The Colour Of Love’ is a more driven rock track with hypnotic drums and a gorgeous chorus that washes over you.
