Deck the halls with Corgan Claus? Hah!
Would you be interested in a Smashing Pumpkins Christmas album??
Well, one might just be around the corner!
Frontman Billy Corgan sat down for an interview with USA Today to reveal that he plans on making a Volume 2 of the band's newest album...and also a Christmas album??
“We’re already talking about tour stuff for next year, so there will be more Pumpkins shows in 2019,” he promised. “But for me, once we get off tour, I’m either going to be doing some writing in LA with some friends or going back to Chicago to start writing new Smashing Pumpkins.”
“I also have an inkling to try and get us to do a Christmas record one day, so I might try to use the Christmas spirit to put the record together in concept, even if we’re not ready to record it."
So what would this sound like?
“It would be probably lean more acoustic. I would think it’s a bit weird [to make] a wild Christmas record. Although, I also like ‘Jingle Bell Rock’, which is basically 1950s rockabilly. But I don’t know. When I think Christmas music, I tend to think something you want to put on and sit around the tree with the kids and not rock out to. I don’t see us doing a rocking-out Christmas album.”
So I guess stay tuned for that...maybe??
