London By Day is a live album by The Smashing Pumpkins documenting the December 5, 2014 performance at the BBC's famed Maida Vale Studios in London. This 2014 lineup of the band included Billy Corgan, Jeff Schroeder, Mark Stoermer of The Killers on bass, and Brad Wilk of Rage Against the Machine on drums. The release is notable as being the first commercial offering to include the Monuments to an Elegy-outtake, "Burnt Orange Black".

The album became available for online ordering and in-store at Madame ZuZu's on December 11, 2023, as a dual LP set pressing on smokey yellow colored vinyl. The first 100 copies were autographed by Corgan, and the non-autographed copies of unknown quantity.[1]

The album artwork is by Chloe Mendel Corgan. The depiction of Big Ben shooting lasers onto the band was by request of Billy Corgan, as was the house in space "somewhere on a lonely planet" seen on the backside.[2]
