The outfit appeared on the show last weekend to perform the track, taken from their second studio album ‘Siamese Dream’.

Speaking to host James Corden about the song choice, department head Billy Corgan joked, “I wrote this song at a very sad time in my life, and I knew I was going to see you. [Corden]. That made me sad, and then I thought, “Wow, we’re going to play the song.” “

Before the show, they chatted with Corden about their upcoming 12th studio album, with Corgan saying, “It’s been a comeback in form. This is the sequel to our album “Mellon Collie” from 1995 and our album “Machina” from 2000.”

This isn’t the first time Corgan has called it a “sequel,” sharing details of the three-track, 33-track album on YouTube in 2020.

“It’s kind of rock music,” he said at the time, adding: “In many ways, this completes the circle of everything we started and couldn’t finish at the time, because so we are very excited about [it]. ”

Corgan revealed that they began recording the album last March, and by July guitarist Jeff Schroeder said they were “half way through”. In a recent update last month, Schroeder told Audio ink radio that the untitled album is complete, but there’s still nothing he can “detail about it”.

In addition to their own ‘Rock Invasion 2’ US tour that kicked off this month, the band is also set to hit the road in October for a North American arena tour with Jane’s Addiction.

Smashing Pumpkins released their last album ‘CYR’ in 2020, NME gave three stars in a review. “Frontman Billy Corgan has been open about his desire to create a ‘contemporary’ record.” He gets his wish – non-stop – in the band’s third decade together,” NMEby Damian Jones.
