Smashing Pumpkins James Iha finally reunites with William “Billy” Corgan for two new recordings in the former’s newest solo LP named Ogilala.
According to Rolling Stone, the two will team up to produce songs called “The Processional” and a yet-to-be-named track in the LP that will be helmed by Rick Rubin. The new collaboration will mark the first time the two have worked on songs after the 2000 Smashing Pumpkins LP named Machina II/The Friends and Enemies of Modern Music.
Fans are hoping this new LP may pave the way for a reunion of the band as well. Though Corgan said this may be possible, but it’s still far off.
Corgan said that while a reunion might be possible, he’s just as clueless as everyone else because nothing else has been formally discussed. He said he’s okay with either possibility, as all that matters to him is that he fosters good relationships with his former bandmates.
“But I’ll say this and I mean it: If we never play a note together again, that’s OK. I’m way, way more interested in the fact that we have peace with each other. I’ve reached the point in my life where I’m not in a hurry to get to anything. If it’s there, great. If it’s not, cool,” he said.
