Smashing Pumpkins está grabando nuevo disco con Rick Rubin

En un largo caption de Instagram, Billy Corgan insinuó que está actualmente grabando con Rick Rubin, lo que podría ser el álbum de reunión de Smashing Pumpkins.

Rick Rubin es un prominente productor discográfico detrás de muchos éxitos, incluida la serie de discos de Johnny CashAmerican Recording.

En una foto de él de los 90 – cuando todavía tenía pelo-, Corgan habló sobre los años de su vida, y tranquilizó a muchos fanáticos preocupados por otra foto que había posteado, en donde se le veía con una intravenosa, la cual publicó con una leyenda que decía “haciendo las paces con Dios”. Aunque todo fue una broma y en realidad el cantante estaba siendo inyectado con vitaminas por una gripe.

En esta foto tipo Throwback Thursday, el cantante escribió en la leyenda “actualmente estamos grabando con Rick Rubin. Pero a menos que les muestre una foto de él sentado como Buda en la consola de grabación, ustedes no lo sabrían”.

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

Aunque si nos gustaría ver esa foto de Rubin, lo que llama la atención de la leyenda es que en todo momento Corgan se refiere a él en plural, lo que nos indica que también está hablando del baterista Jimmy Chamberlin y el guitarrista, James Iha, sus compañeros de Smashing Pumpkins

Rubin también trabajó con Corgan el año pasado en su álbum solista, Ogilala. Y con Smashing Pumpkins en 1997 con la canción Let Me Give The World To You.
