Smashing Pumpkins are streaming their new album "Oceania" online via iTunes.
The album isn't formally released until next Monday (June 18), but can be heard in full now. The album is the seventh full-length effort of the band's career.
"Oceania," which was originally due last September, will now be released on June 18 and has been described as an "album within an album" as it is part of their 44-song cycle "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope," the first songs for which were released in 2009.
Speaking about the album, Corgan
said: "I was dead set on making an album where every song was just as valuable as any other, ignoring the typical claptrap you hear about needing a single. The only way to make the case that every song on 'Oceania' is worth hearing is to put your heart into the sequence as a cohesive whole. Once we felt we'd achieved that balance, only then did we let anyone outside our world hear the record we'd made.
The tracklisting for "Oceania" is as follows:
03. The Celestials
04. Violet Rays
05. My Love Is Winter
06. One Diamond, One Heart
09. Pale Horse
10. The Chimera
