Tommy Lee has said that the Smashing Pumpkins he is working on features frontman Billy Corgan's best songs to date.


As revealed last week, Mötley Crüe drummer Lee plays drums on nine songs from the band's forthcoming new album 'Monuments To An Elegy' and speaking to Billboard about the record, told fans to expect "epic, goose-bump songs."

"I think he has probably the best record he's ever written," Lee says. "These are like epic, goose-bump songs. It sounds like the first couple of Smashing Pumpkins records. I was fucking blown away."

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 'Monuments To An Elegy'. The second is likely to be called 'Day For Night' and the band hope to precede both LPs with a new single this year (2014).

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'
