Smashing Pumpkins recruit Tommy Lee for new album
Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has revealed that he is working with Mötley Crüe's Tommy Lee.

According to an update on the band's website, Lee plays drums on nine songs from the band's forthcoming new album 'Monuments To An Elegy'.

"Here’s a shot from the mission out west," Corgan wrote. "Just finished round 1 of tracking drums with Tommy Lee for the new the Smashing Pumpkins album. Shockla-locka-boom."

Last week, Corgan announced that he has nearly finished recording one of two new albums that the band will release in 2015. The first, which he says is nearly completed, will be titled 'Monuments To An Elegy'. The second will be called 'Day For Night' and the band hope to precede both LPs with a new single this year (2014).

"Thrilled to report that we now have our album in total, as top songs are arranged and set for drum tracking," Corgan wrote last week. "So over the next 3 days I’ll be focusing on vocal arrangements, lyrics, and tweaking the overall aesthetics of the record as I hope it shall be. At least then I’ll be able to share a different narrative for a spell, and get off this merry-go-round we’ve all been on."

He also shared a tentative tracklisting for 'Monuments To An Elegy', which you can see below:

'Being Beige (World’s On Fire)'
'Anti-Hero'
'Tiberius'
'Run To Me'
'One And All'
'Drum And Fife'
'Dorian'
'Monuments'
'Anaise'
