Last month, the frontman announced the band will release two new albums in 2015, with the titles "Monuments to an Elegy
" and "Day for a Night
Writing on Smashing Pumpkins official website, he wrote: "Worked through 4 songs today: 'TIBERIUS' (with new and improved epic wizard part), 'THE SPANIARDS' (de-lovely and expansive, set aside for 'DAY FOR NIGHT;' I think), 'OVERJOYED' (a Howard fave, so you know what that means hand-waving fans), and 'MONUMENTS' (which if memory serves had been 'COUGARED')."
He continued: "Not sure of our numbers now (as in 26 minus ?), but next week we’ll have to cut down to at least 12-13 songs for 'Monuments' album, with even more cuts to follow."
Corgan also revealed his progress on his "spiritual memoir,"
stating: "After many fits and false start I can now report that I've just finished Section 1 of my book, 'God Is Everywhere From Here to There;' with 3 more sections planned. With Part 1 clocking in around 120,000 words, I'd anticipate with the current pace that the writing process will be finished sometime around the end of this year; or early next."For those that don't know, the book is set as a spiritual memoir and is a dream-like take on one person's journey through temporal life. What it is not is a celebrity tale. Ostensibly each section breaks down into sub-sections, and in the case of Part 1, totaled 3 in all. While the narrative is somewhat linear, time is treated for what it really is: an illusion; and memory: our own myth."
