Smashing Pumpkins Announce New, Limited Edition Album for 2014
Toward the end of March, Smashing Pumpkins announced two new albums for 2015. Die-hard fans, however, won’t have to wait that long to hear new material – assuming you can get your hands on it.
Billy Corgan revealed through the band’s official website that there is another album in the works – expected to come out later in 2014. Called AEGEA, the two-disc vinyl release had been recorded in 2007.
Only 250 copies will be available, priced at $60 each and hand-numbered by Corgan himself. There doesn’t appear to be any word where these will be available, but the album is set to come out in six to eight weeks from now.
Speaking about this release, he wrote: "As a work, AEGEA is experimental in nature, and comes across as more a soundtrack to some lost foreign film than the kind of music I’m usually associated with. Listening back I quite like how AEGEA goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating."
This won’t affect the two 2015 albums, titled Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night. Both officially follow 2012’s Oceania, which peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. This time around, fans will have the opportunity to see the recording process and Smashing Pumpkins’ progress online.
