The Smashing Pumpkins have announced a new double album titled CYR, due out on November 27.

The effort spans 20 songs, two of which have already been released: the title track, and opener “The Colour of Love.”

CYR is the follow-up to 2018’s Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun., which marked the first release from the Pumpkins in nearly 20 years to feature founding members Billy Corgan, James Iha and Jimmy Chamberlin.

Along with CYR, the alt-rock veterans are launching an animated web series based on the album. The five-part project, titled In Ashes, was created and written by Corgan, and features songs from CYR. The first two episodes premiere next Friday, September 25.

Here’s the CYR track list:
