Corgan commented via Instagram:

“COTILLIONS: NOV 22, this double album, a true labor of love, is available on all digital platforms. All you have to do is pre-subscribe so you can see the song titles and have it waiting for you the moment it comes out.

Don’t miss the chance to hear it for yourself before others tell you what my songs are or aren’t.

There is a reason I trust you, the people who support me day in and day out, to decide whether or not my efforts are worthy.

We live in a different world now, where an artist can speak directly to you without the filter of mass media shaping your heart and opinions before you’ve even had a chance to decide whether this music speaks to you. And this is absolutely an album from my heart. And so is the new SP, which will be out soon enough.

I can’t thank you enough for the support I’ve been given to make moments like this possible.

Soon, we’ll have details on how you can order a vinyl copy, of which there will be 2 editions; the Zuzu’s version being limited and having more in it.

Lastly, please give love to the artist who made the statues on the front cover, @avassfez and shot the cover and all images within, @jennyfaridathastrom. Now, go pre-subscribe for this record. OUT TO YOU Nov 22”

Billy Corgan On His New Solo Material: “I’m Heavily Leaning Towards Releasing 4 EPs That Would Later Be Collected Together”

In addition to the new Smashing Pumpkins EPs, Billy Corgan has 16 songs in consideration for his next solo release, including some covers. According to him, the tracks will probably be released as four EPs that will then get compiled into a double album later on.

One of the wonderful things about this new age of social media is that I get a very clear sense of what others are interested in as it pertains to my personal or public life. And one must avoid the Pavlovian response to speak to the greater interest at the detriment of those who truly are interested in artistic process (which time has shown is probably the least interesting detail to most). So here, over two screencaps, I have listed the songs collected for this newest solo album (named, but not yet revealed). Page 1 having the newer songs written plus those that are to be re-recorded, Page 2 has the cover songs I’d like to take a stab it (time permitting) and also those (the ones with ***) that I’m satisfied with; having cut the masters during my last trip to Nashville. Now, I realize a list doesn’t do much if you haven’t heard the music, but it does show the work involved and that there will be new music coming soon in addition to the 8 @smashingpumpkins songs being mixed. And I’ve stated before, given that I’d like this solo album to be 16 songs (or a true double vinyl for collectors) I’m heavily leaning towards releasing 4 ep’s that would later be collected together; for it’s hard for me to imagine that 16 acoustic songs could be given a fair listen far past those of you reading this post. Which takes me back to my original thought in this, which is if you know many won’t hear-listen-or be particularly affected in this time-space, why bother(?) the answer is simple: It’s who I am (a writer/musician) and life’s greatest personal joy is to be who you are without reservation. And make no mistake, I am lucky as almost all my released work, given space and time, is being found, discovered, and celebrated where it deserves to be. And it is because of kind people like you, who actually read to the bottom of these posts, that such dissemination is possible. So if life is a long novel, I still have many, many chapters to write, and lost pages to pull up from the dust. Because when all is said and done, I do plan on leaving a full testament to what I saw and understood here, and I’m cool if that means only you and the aliens will understand. The rest, in God’s hands.
