Smashing Pumpkins founder Billy Corgan has been gushing about his collaboration with Korn’s Jonathan Davis when writing their new single “You’ll Never Find Me.”
He said: “Loved working with Jonathan Davis. He’s the real deal.” Adding: “Feels fresh, and the band is as vicious as ever.”
This isn’t Corgan’s first co-writing situation, he had a huge hit with Courtney Love on the 1998 Hole album Celebrity Skin, co-writing the title track and “Malibu.”
As for Jonathan Davis, he explained to Kerrang that: “It’s basically me dealing with all the stuff that happened to me last year. Very emotional for me, but it is what it is.
“I really spent a long time on doing what I wanted to do this time,” he continued. “No producers came in. And people trying to get me to do one thing this way or the other way — everybody was overthinking a lot of things — but I finally was fed up with it and kicked everyone out and said, ‘It’ll be done when it’s done.’
“And I locked myself up in my studio and spent a long time reflecting and just healing and making my art. And a couple of months later, I came out and it’s done.”
“It was really hard [making the new Korn album], but that’s how I’ve always dealt with all my problems — just throwing my heart and soul into my art.”
