Smashing Pumpkins Returning With 'Oceania' In June
EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution has announced that it has entered into an exclusive agreement with Martha's Music to release the highly anticipated album from The Smashing Pumpkins entitled "Oceania" on June 19th, 2012. The agreement covers the world excluding Canada, Brazil and Australia. 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 7th 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, added: "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". Mike Harris EVP/GM EMI Label Services / Caroline distribution said: "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."
