Billy Corgan Working on New Smashing Pumpkins Material
Billy Corgan has announced that he is writing material for the new Smashing Pumpkins record. The frontman posted a picture of himself playing acoustic guitar on Facebook, accompanied by the caption "Writing new SP songs."

It remains to be seen what the new Smashing Pumpkins material will sound like. Speaking to Crestfallen last year, Corgan expressed displeasure with the band's current direction, noting that they had become too "nicey nice:"

"I don't really know what makes sense any more," said Corgan. "I think you have to come to a place where you say, if you continue you continue with a particular vision, not keep rolling with the tide. Because the tide as it is I don't think it's that great.

"I'm not saying that the audience isn't great, or that the band isn't great. Something about it all feels a little too nicey nice. I'm not in a rock and roll band to be nice nice. It's just not my thing."
