Smashing Pumpkins' Billy Corgan Unveils New Solo Album 'Cotillions'
Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan is once again going solo. His next album is called Cotillions, and it will arrive digitally on November 22 via his own Martha's Music imprint.

The album follows 2017's Ogilala, and once again, he will be releasing it as William Patrick Corgan, so don't call him Billy please.

On Corgan's Instagram, he called Cotillions a double album and "a true labor of love." While also encouraging fans to pre-subscribe for the album, he wrote the following — promising new Pumpkins material is headed our way soon:

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.

While Cotillions will first arrive digitally, it will also come on vinyl at a later date. You can see the album cover above and the tracklist below.
