Smashing Pumpkins dikabarkan tengah menggarap album baru dengan formasi reuni, yang diproduseri Rick Rubin. Kabar ini telah dikonfirmasi oleh Billy Corgan melalui akun Instagramnya pada 28 Januari lalu.

Di awal Januari, Corgan juga mengunggah fotonya bersama James Iha (gitar) dan Jimmy Chamberlin (drum) di sebuah studio. Ketiganya adalah bagian dari formasi Smashing Pumpkins yang menghasilkan rentetan album seminal dari Gish (1991) hingga Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music (2000)

Melalui keterangan foto panjang khas Corgan, gitaris berkepala plontos ini merangkum perjalanan Smashing Pumpkins sejak era Siamese Dream (1993) hingga proses rekaman dengan Rick Rubin tahun ini.

“Sekarang kami sedang bekerja bersama Rick Rubin di studio. Namun jika saya tidak mengunggah foto Rick yang sedang duduk bersila seperti Buddha, kamu mungkin tidak akan mengetahui hal ini,” tulis Corgan.

 

I've had a crazy life. Good crazy, but crazy nonetheless. For example. I saw this picture of myself the other day. Besides having a generally good idea of when it was taken (1993 or 1994) I don't remember actually taking the photo, nor do I remember countless others like it between the years 1991-2004. Now, perhaps that says something about my inability or desire to remember, but I'd argue it's an unfortunate result of the blur of those years. Which leads me to this time, or this moment, where like so many, I share a window (curated as it is) into my crazy life. As an example, we are currently in the studio with Rick Rubin. But unless I show you a picture of Rick sitting Buddha-like at a mixing desk, you probably wouldn't know that. Or when I, in a very naive way, post a shot with a needle in my arm and ramble on about making peace with God and time left on dear 'ol Earth, it sent some signal to friends and associates alike that I was sick or wanted other's sympathy. (As fact, it was an IV full of vitamins and homeopathy to assist in getting over this vicious flu). So yes, was sick, and no, not serious in any way nor would I share such info here because this window I'd prefer to be one where you see the sunlight streaming through. The only addendum to that is when I saw how others were reacting to their perception of my misguided and poorly worded message, I chose not to react in kind; in essence I let the shadows cast be whatever you-they-them want to believe. Because we live now in a world where perception often outweighs reality, and that's fine. So to that, here's a new pic I just took of me with my sandy-brown, curly hair flowing in the studio breeze. Lots of love, WPC #wpc

Setahun belakangan, Corgan memang kerap membicarakan reuni formasi awal Smashing Pumpkins. Ia tak sendirian lantaran Chamberlin juga sempat membeberkan rencana ini dalam wawancaranya dengan WGN Radio pada pertengahan 2017.

Satu-satunya personel yang dipastikan tidak ambil bagian dalam reuni ini adalah bassis D’arcy Wretzky. Dalam wawancara dengan BlastEcho pada 21 Januari lalu, ia menyatakan bahwa Smashing Pumpkins telah merekrut bassis baru.

“Kami tengah membicarakan untuk kembali tampil tahun depan, dan ada yang bertanya pada saya, ‘Bagaimana rasanya kembali mengumpulkan mereka?’,” ujar Chamberlin.

“Saya minta maaf pada semua penggemar yang menunggu tur reuni formasi asli Smashing Pumpkins. Saya juga kecewa, tapi saya tidak akan bergabung dalam reuni ini,” ucap Wretzky.

Sejak 2006, Corgan telah membentuk ulang Smashing Pumpkins dengan beberapa formasi baru, di antaranya bersama Chamberlain.

Baru-baru ini telah bocor juga foto di balik sesi pemotretan formasi baru Smashing Pumpkins. Nampak di foto tersebut trio formasi klasik Corgan, Iha, dan Chamberlin, serta Jeff Schroeder, gitaris yang telah bergabung ke Smashing Pumpkins sejak 2007.
