SMASHING PUMPKINS - CYR[ORCHID VINYL]
Smashing Pumpkins have finally confirmed details of their forthcoming double-album ‘Cyr', set to be their first full length release since 2018.
Taking to social media, the band announced the album will be 20 tracks long and is set for release on Friday, November 27th.
Stretching across 20 tracks, CYR will be the band's first double-album since the iconic Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness from 1995.
Cut in Chicago, CYR will feature the previously-released title track and "The Colour Of Love," and was produced by frontman Billy Corgan alongside bandmates James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin 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. 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 weve never fought the dream as a collective, or its 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 thats 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”. - Billy Corgan
