The Smashing Pumpkins: 'Oceania' Details Unveiled
According to Blabbermouth.net, The Smashing Pumpkins will release their new album, "Oceania", on June 19 via EMI Label Services/Caroline distribution. Produced by The Smashing Pumpkins' frontman Billy Corgan, "Oceania" is an intense and dynamic offering that will appeal to new and existing fans of The Smashing Pumpkins alike. "Oceania", the band's seventh studio record, is "an album within an album", part of their 44-song work-in-progress "Teargarden By Kaleidyscope". Peter Katsis, manager of Smashing Pumpkins for Prospect Park, stated: "The Smashing Pumpkins created 'Oceania' as an album experience, and it is intended for the process of the release to follow a path of inclusion, so that best efforts are made for all the fans hear it at the same time as press or radio. We were excited to find partners in EMI Label Services that were equally passionate about the plan for the album release as well as being huge fans of the Pumpkins." EMI's relationship with The Smashing Pumpkins dates back more than 20 years, to the release of "Gish" in 1991. That album was reissued this past November along with 1993's "Siamese Dream". Said Mike Harris, EVP/GM EMI Label Services/Caroline distribution: "We are thrilled to extend the long-term partnership between The Smashing Pumpkins and EMI with the release of 'Oceania'. Everybody at EMI Label Services is looking forward to working closely with Billy and the band to help them deliver their vision and their music to fans around the world." "Oceania" track listing: 01.
