Billy Corgan tiró un par de pistas en su Instagram.

En un extenso pie de foto en Instagram, Billy Corgan parece haber revelado que Rick Rubin está produciendo el álbum de regreso de Smashing Pumpkins que el frontman está anunciando desde hace varios años. En realidad, la intención del posteo era desmentir los rumores de mala salud; los fantáticos se preocuparon cuando publicó una foto en la que estaba recibiendo una infusión intravenenosa con un epígrafe que decía: “Haciendo las paces con Dios”.

“Abrí una ventana para que puedan ver mi loca vida”, escribió Corgan. “Por ejemplo, que estamos en el estudio con Rick Rubin. Pero a menos que les muestre una foto de Rick sentado como Buda mientras mezcla los temas, no lo sabrían”.

La semana pasada, Corgan compartió una foto de él junto al baterista Jimmy Chamberlin y el guitarrista James Iha en un estudio. Además, Corgan y Chamberlin postearon un set de batería en un riincón que parece del estudio en Mañibú que Rubin siempre elige para grabar.

Rubin ya trabajó con Corgan en 2017, en su álbum solista Ogilala, y con Smashing Pumpkins en 1997 para la canción Let Me Give the World to You.

La semana pasada, la bajista D’Arcy Wretzky confirmó que la reunión de la banda, pero dijo que no la invitaron a participar. “Decidieron hacerlo con otro bajista”, dijo.


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
