Credit: Olivia BeeIn addition to reuniting for a giant tour this summer, three-fourths of the original Smashing Pumpkins are also working on new music. In fact, frontman Billy Corgan already has titles for eight new songs.

In an Instagram post, Corgan writes, "Back home in Chicago, snowy and unfair as she is, with a week to refine lyrics for the 8 new SP songs."

He adds that he, James Iha and latter-day Pumpkins guitarist Jeff Schroeder will make their way to Malibu next week to "sing shiny new lyrics and cut final guitar overdubs."

As for the song titles, they are: "Alienation," "Travels," "Silvery Sometimes," "Solara," "With Sympathy," "Marchin' On," "Knights of Malta" and "Seek and You Shall Destroy."

Along with the Pumpkins tracks, Corgan says he has 16 or 18 tracks for a new solo album, the follow-up to 2017's Ogilala.

Corgan, Iha and drummer Jimmy Chamberlin will hit the road together for their first time in nearly 20 years on the Shiny and Oh So Bright tour, which begins July 12 in Glendale, Arizona. Original bassist D'arcy Wretzky will not be taking part in the reunion.

John Shearer/Getty Images via ABCShe may be a Grammy-winning, multi-platinum star, but Lorde still can't escape a common problem: acne.

The singer took to Instagram over the weekend to vent her frustrations over her problem skin and the ridiculous advice people try to give her. In her Instagram Story, she filmed herself using an LED light treatment on her face.

"For real though, acne sucks,” she says in the video. “You know what also sucks? When you’ve had acne for years and years and years, done all the drugs, tried all the things, and people are still like, ‘You know what worked for me, is moisturizing!’”

She continues to run down the annoying advice she’s gotten: “Make a mask out of honey, Greek yogurt and avocado. All you need to do is buy an apricot scrub! Coconut oil – the secret is coconut oil!”

Lorde says her least favorite of all the acne assumptions is that she’s “just dirty.”

“’Do you wash your face?’ It’s like, yes, I wash my face! I’m just genetically cursed,” she says.

She leaves her fellow acne-sufferers with a positive message: “For everyone out there who’s got bad skin — and actual bad skin, not just the kind of bad skin you can just use a fancy cream for for a few days and it will get better — I feel your pain. We’ll get there; we will. I promise.”

ABC/Randy HolmesThe first TV interview with Vicky Cornell, Chris Cornell's widow, since her husband's 2017 suicide will air on ABC's Good Morning America this Wednesday, February 21.

In a preview clip of the interview, Vicky maintains that the Soundgarden frontman, who battled addiction throughout his life, was not in his right mind when he took his own life the early morning of May 18 due to a relapse in drug use.

"My husband was the furthest thing from a rock star junkie. He just wasn't," Vicky says. "He was the best husband, the greatest father. I lost my soulmate and the love of my life. He wanted to be there for his family, for his children. He loved his life. He would never have ever left this world."

She adds that she doesn't think Chris "could make any decisions" at the time of his death "because of the level of impairment."

Since Chris' death, Vicky says she's reexamined her own views of addiction, and feels that she should've seen "signs" in her husband's behavior.

"I know that people say, 'You can't blame yourself,' and I'm trying not to," Vicky says. "But there were signs."

"People think that addiction is, like, 'Oh, you were an addict,' and people don't recognize it as a disease," she adds. "I feel guilty of the same thing. You think addiction is a choice, and it's not."

The full interview will premiere on Wednesday's Good Morning America, airing at 7 a.m. ET on ABC.

Credit: Michelle ShiersStone Temple Pilots have shared another preview of their forthcoming self-titled album, which is their first with new lead singer Jeff Gutt. The new track is called "The Art of Letting Go," and you can grab it now via digital outlets.

Given the deaths of past STP singers Scott Weiland and Chester Bennington, you can guess what "The Art of Letting Go" is about.   As the title suggests, the track is a softer, slower tune, especially compared to the grungier previously released singles "Meadow" and "Roll Me Under."

Stone Temple Pilots the album will be released on March 16. The band kicks off a headlining tour March 2 in Santa Clarita, California.

Credit: Brantley GutierrezDuring last fall's Foo Fighters-curated CalJam 17 festival, Dave Grohl and company closed out the festivities with a cover of The Beatles classic "Come Together," with lead vocals provided by Liam Gallagher. But according to the former Oasis vocalist, the Foos did not get their full dose of Liam.

"They keep texting me, man," Gallagher tells NME. "They wanted to do one tune, but I dunno -- I'll do it one day, but I'm too busy doing [my solo career] at the moment."

Gallagher does count himself a fan of the Foos, and says they have "good tunes."

"I think Dave Grohl's very talented, and so is the band," he adds.

Foo Fighters have been in a collaborative mood as of late: Their new album Concrete and Gold features appearances from Paul McCartney, Justin Timberlake and Boyz II Men's Shawn Stockman, among others.

In other Liam Gallagher happenings, Noisey.com had the brilliant idea of having a group of small children interview the famously cranky musician.  Luckily, Gallagher doesn't unleash any profanity on the kids, but at one point in the video, when one child asks him if he "gets sweets" after playing a good concert, he responds, "Yeah, sort of."

On her Instagram, Love shared a black-and-white photo of her and the iconic Nirvana frontman. In the caption, she wrote "Happy birthday baby god I miss you."

Cobain was born February 20, 1967. The musician struggled with substance abuse and mental health issues throughout his life, and died by suicide in April 1994 at age 27. He's survived by Love and by daughter Frances Bean Cobain, who earlier this month revealed her own battle with addiction.

ABC/Randy HolmesIncubus has a busy touring schedule ahead of them in support of their 2017 album 8, but frontman Brandon Boyd reveals they'll also be making time for the recording studio while on tour.

"We're...working on some new music," Boyd tells ABC Radio.

Boyd isn't sure yet what form the new music will take; he says the band might release a new EP similar to 2015's Trust Fall (Side A), or perhaps a string of one-off singles.  But he's sure that, whatever it ends up being, it'll arrive sometime this year.

"There will definitely be some new sounds coming out of this band in 2018," he says.

Incubus is currently touring Asia, and they'll return to the U.S. in March for a pair of dates in Hawaii and then the second half of their Las Vegas residency. The band will also hit several festivals this spring and summer, including BottleRock, Bunbury and Rock Fest.

David Wolff - Patrick/RedfernsHouse actress Charlyne Yi has accused Marilyn Manson of harassment and of making racist remarks towards her.

In a series of now-deleted tweets, captured by The Hollywood Reporter, Yi claims that Manson "harassed just about every woman" when he visited the set of the medical drama during its final season. She adds that the musician called her a "China man."

Yi made her comments in response to the headlines regarding Manson's bizarre show in Huntington, New York last Thursday, during which the shock rocker reportedly rambled incoherently and implored the audience to tell him they "love" him before cutting the concert short.

"It's so triggering to see people come up on the internet who have harassed you," Yi tweeted. "And then when you talk about the incidents you become known as the person tied to the harasser. And that's just your name from now on. It almost overrides who you are."

According to the Hollywood Reporter, in October, Yi accused actress Amber Tamblyn's husband, David Cross, of making racist comments many years ago.

Yi's Twitter account has since been deactivated.

Manson has not responded publicly to the claims. He did share a review of his show in Sayreville, New Jersey, held the night after the Huntington incident, which called the concert "amazing."

Steven Ferdman/Getty ImagesDon’t get too excited, but it sure looks like the new Tool album is coming together.

Frontman Maynard James Keenan has given an uncharacteristically encouraging update on the enigmatic metal band’s long-awaited follow-up to their last effort, 2006’s 10,000 Days.

“Started getting music files from the boys [with] the word FINAL in the title a few months ago after 11 years of begging,” Keenan tweets. “That in theory means the tracks wont change out from under me while I’m trying to write stories and melodies to them. In theory.”

“Still waiting for the FINAL on 1...but way ahead,” he adds. “Words & Melodies 100% DONE on all but 1. Someday we’ll track them. Long way from the finish line, but at least we’re closer.”

Ever the curmudgeon, Keenan adds the hashtags "#whileyouwerewhiningiwasworking" and "#theresyourupdate."

Over the past few months, the rest of Tool — guitarist Adam Jones, drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor — have been working on the instrumentals for the album, and have invited artists such as Tom Morello and Sebastian Bach to hear them.

You can also hear Keenan on the upcoming new A Perfect Circle album Eat the Elephant, due out April 20.

Credit: Danny ClinchMuse is playing a show in Paris on February 24, and you can help craft the set list.

Ticketholders can submit five songs that you want Muse to play, and those selections will be use to help curate the show. Even if you're not going to the concert, you can still contribute by watching live via the band's Facebook, Twitter or YouTube and voting on set selections in real time.

If you're thinking of songs to submit, Muse just released a new single called "Thought Contagion." It's the follow-up to the British trio's 2017 one-off track, "Dig Down."

Muse will make their way to the U.S. this spring for a number of festival appearances, including Carolina Rebellion, BottleRock and Bonnaroo.

Taylor Hill/Getty Images for Governors BallWe have another person who can confirm that new Tool music actually exists. Sebastian Bach visited the enigmatic band in the studio Thursday, and the ex-Skid Row frontman apparently liked what he heard.

"This is not just your average simple rock and roll music," Bach wrote in a Facebook post Friday. "This is progressive metal at its most atmospheric, and right when you get into a groovy trance you get beat over the head with riffs so heavy it feels like a TOOL."

Buzz Osborne of the Melvins was also at the listening session, but Maynard James Keenan was not, as the vocals for the new album have yet to be recorded.

When asked about the disc's progress in a Rolling Stone interview published earlier this month, Keenan, who's releasing a new album with A Perfect Circle in April, replied, "Yeah, I've got nothing."

Last December, Tom Morello revealed that he had heard some of Tool's new music, which he deemed "epic," "majestic" and "sexy."

ABC/Randy HolmesAdd Imagine Dragons to the list of bands asking politicians not to use their music.

Apparently, the Conservative Political Action Conference, an annual event attended by conservative activists and elected officials, had been using ID's song "Whatever It Takes" on its website.

When this was brought to the band's attention on Twitter, they replied, "Not cool," adding, "We are reaching out to get it taken down."

The song has since been removed from the site.

This isn't the first time a musician has taken issue with CPAC using their music. After he learned that one of his song's played at last year's conference, Andrew McMahon told the group to "take me off your playlist."

Night Street/Interscope K.Flay has shared a new song called "Run for Your Life," a song she recorded for the upcoming Tomb Raider reboot. The frenzied, feral track is available digitally now.

"I wrote 'Run for Your Life' in a hotel room in Johnson City, Tennessee, a few hours before my show that night," the "Blood in the Cut" singer tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I think the frantic energy of touring found its way into the track."

She adds that writing "Run for Your Life" was a "challenge," since she hadn't seen the whole film yet.  "I've of course seen it now and it's awesome," she says.

Tomb Raider stars Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander as the iconic video game character Lara Croft, played previously by Angelina Jolie. The film hits theaters March 16.

K.Flay is currently touring Europe opening for Imagine Dragons, and she'll embark on her own North American headlining trek in March. Starting in July, she'll be supporting Thirty Seconds to Mars on their U.S Monolith tour.

David Wolff-Patrick/RedfernsMarilyn Manson's show in Huntington, New York, Thursday night apparently did not go well. According to several reports from attendees, the famed shock rocker appeared "drugged, drunk or sick," demanded that the crowd tell him they "love" him, and ended the show after only a few songs.

"[Manson] was too messed up and couldn't perform," one concertgoer told Newsday. "It was disappointing."

"It was horrible," another added. "He couldn't even talk."

Several fans have also taken to social media to demand refunds.

Manson is currently on tour in support of his new album, Heaven Upside Down. The Huntington show was originally scheduled for last fall but was postponed after the musician injured himself in a stage prop accident during a show in New York City.

RCA RecordsThree Days Grace's new song is for everyone who doesn't want to fit in. The track is called "I Am an Outsider," available for download now via digital outlets.

Speaking with Billboard, drummer Neil Sanderson says the song is about "deciding that you don't want to be exposed to so many influences in your life and to people who have a negative influence on you."

He goes on: "You want to be able to take a great big step backwards and view all the chaos and absurdity from a distance -- 'I don't want to believe the same way, the same things you to just to sort of conform to anything. I want to have my own set of thoughts and my own set of feelings,'" he adds. "We've always kind of felt like that, I think."

"I Am an Outsider" appears on Three Days Grace's forthcoming new album, Outsider, available March 9.  It also features the single "The Mountain." Here's the Outsider track list:

"Right Left Wrong"
"The Mountain"
"I Am an Outsider"
