A New Smashing Pumpkins Album CYR Arrives Today
The Smashing Pumpkins have released their highly-anticipated eleventh studio album, CYR (via Sumerian Records). A 20-track double album, produced by Billy Corgan in Chicago. He is also joined by fellow founding members Jimmy Chamberlin, James Iha, and guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
“CYR represents, at least symbolically, the makings of a dissociative life, which best as we can tell IS modern life: as presented through a variety of sources; past, present, and future.” Explains Corgan. “Where even our own story as a band is often represented as something more grotesque and glorious than we actually experienced it. Which, it should be noted, is fine. Because we’ve never fought the dream as a collective, or it’s a prickly twin (hence the snazzy title of one of our earliest records). So in CYR, you get 20 pieces of fractured ideology, neither here nor there but that’s sort of the point. To ape that which in the post-technology age is not so easily defined and pinned down, but can be shown in a lithe, restless melody”.
On Tuesday, December 1 the band will be performing their Alternative Radio hit ‘Cyr’ on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Along with speaking guests Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo. Earlier in the day, Billy will be appearing live on The Howard Stern Show. For more information, go to www.howardstern.com
