Smashing Pumpkins Set Release Date For Sprawling New Album ‘CYR’

The Smashing Pumpkins are doubling up for CYR, their sprawling new album which now has a release date and a tracklist.

Cut in Chicago, CYR will feature the previously-released title track and “The Colour Of Love,” and was produced by frontman Billy Corgan alongside bandmates James Iha, Jimmy Chamberlin and guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
