Tommy Lee, currently filling the studio drum spot during recording sessions for the new Smashing Pumpkins album, has said that the new material is like the Pumpkins’ earliest records.

The Mötley Crüe drummer plays on nine songs from the Smashing Pumpkins’ 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 of front man Billy Corgan’s new material. “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.

Corgan also shared a tentative track listing for Monuments… that is as follows:

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