The Smashing Pumpkins have premiered a new single “Silvery Sometimes.” The song is a follow up to the reunited Chicago alt-rockers first new single in nearly two decades “Solara” and the latest release from an as-yet-untitled studio album, which will drop in mid-November.
Consequences of Sound reports on Sept. 13 that the two-time Grammy winners premiered “Silvery Sometimes” on Thursday via BBC Radio 6 Music. The song debut comes ahead of the band's upcoming Shiny And Oh So Bright Tour stop on Oct. 16 in London at The SSE Arena.
Along with debuting the song, BBC Radio 6 DJ Lauren Laverne also revealed that the upcoming release will be produced by multi-Grammy winner Rick Rubin. The highly anticipated album will be the band's first since 2014's Monuments to an Elegy and the first to feature SP founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin since the bookend releases of Machina/The Machines of God and Machina II/The Friends & Enemies of Modern Music back in 2000.
The Smashing Pumpkins wrapped up their massive North American reunion tour leg on Sept. 9 in Edmonton, Alberta. Asides from the London stop, the band has one other date in Europe, scheduled for Oct. 16 in Bologna, Italy, at Unipol Arena.
Corgan and company will perform a final 2018 U.S. show, which will take place in the band's hometown on Nov. 30 in Chicago at Aragon Ballroom, which is already sold out. Grab your Smashing Pumpkins tickets now at AXS. For all the latest details on Smashing Pumpkins, click here.
