Default Any chance a new single might drop with the announcement on 2/15?

SP camp seems to be hyping the 2/15 date extra hard with the countdown and the billboards and the ice cream truck campaign... Most people are expecting that it'll be a tour announcement with the news that James will be on board. That's certainly cool and all, but could it be possible that a new song will drop with the announcement? I almost get the vibe that they're pushing extra hard for something bigger than a simple tour/album announcement.

Dropping an awesome new song would certainly be a great way to roll out the news. Probably a long shot, but I think it might be a possibility.

yeah probably but it's going to suck considering there's three guitars in it and james or billy will be relegated to a turned down rhythm guitar to balance it out, amirite or what?!?

Mock as you may, but I've heard and seen countless live recordings were the 3 guitar approach in Zwan sounds like a mess.

I'm assuming they have big money behind this reunion jaunt, so the odds of that happening again are going to be lessened, but still, I don't see why they'd want to experiment with something new now... It's been 30 years with 2 guitarists and it's been great. Why shake it up now?

There's NO CHANCE Billy Corgan is going to lead a reunion with an acoustic covers album. It's simply not in his DNA.

The only way a guy like Billy would rationalize doing a reunion tour is if there was new music to accompany it.

This whole thing is stupid. Leave it to billy corgan to have a "final" show and then not one but two reunions. Didn't he already do this in 2005/2007? Why does Billy think he can do this again? The pumpkins already had a reunion. In 2007

I'm thinking it'll be the single along with tour dates. Seems like the obvious thing to do. If the Blast Echo article is correct, that's what it'll be.

It'll be interesting to hear the song. I haven't been this curious since that Tarantula clip was posted 11 years ago. It sort of a similar situation like the one we had with "Untitled". BC, JI, JC, stand alone single.

If it is just a single before the tour, and they plan on recording more with James later in the year for an actual album, that would be a small relief. Doubtful though.

An acoustic greatest hits recorded like Ogilala would be a curiosity.

Yeah I'd love to hear an Everlasting Gaze acoustic. That acapella rant done in vibrato would be sublime.

Billy IG-ed a picture of his headphone mix module and there was a "James - GTR" sticker on one of the tracks.

wait, so the current info, whatever it is and how solid it is, is that james isn't even playing on the tour?

Maybe he owns a Nissan GTR and they are incorporating a turbo sound to the track?

My understanding was that James will play on the tour with Jeff and Billy on guitar and, most likely, Jack Bates handling bass. James' involvement in the studio appears to be limited to this first single that will come out. My guess is that it was like the song on Ogilala. Billy/Jimmy/Jeff recorded it themselves, and James came in and put some ebow on top of the track.
