Solara is the first recording in over 18 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin. Recorded in Malibu, CA at Shangri La Studios with producer Rick Rubin and longtime Smashing Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder.
Fans have been waiting a long time for a new song from three-quarters of the classic Smashing Pumpkins lineup. Original bassist D’Arcy Wretzky is not apart of the song or the group’s upcoming reunion tour following some heated arguments and conflicting reports between her and the rest of the band.
In July, the reunited Smashing Pumpkins will begin their North American Shiny and Oh So Bright tour where the set list will comprise songs from their first five albums.
