Smashing Pumpkins Recording New Album and Plan Catalog Remaster Campaign

Some big news from the Smashing Pumpkins camp that involves a new studio album, plus EMI have announced an extensive campaign that will see the band's albums from 1991-2000 reissued in fully remastered deluxe versions, each with bonus material.

The Smashing Pumpkins will head into the studio in May to record Oceania--"an album within an album"--as part of their in-progress 44-song work Teargarden By Kaleidyscope, nine songs of which have already been released online for free (with two elaborately packaged EPs available in stores).

The 10 new songs from Oceania will be released online at once in September (exact details TBA). The band is also eyeing a possible return to the road this August. Meanwhile, The Smashing Pumpkins will release one more song ("Owata") next week (details TBA) from Teargarden By Kaleidyscope before they take a break to record Oceania.

With the full support and guidance from The Smashing Pumpkins, EMI will roll out the global catalog campaign with the band's 1991 debut album Gish, 1993's Siamese Dream and the 1994 compilation album Pisces Iscariot.

The campaign will continue into 2012 when EMI will reissue 1995's nine-times-platinum double album Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness, 1996's five-disc box set The Aeroplane Flies High and 1998's Adore.

In 2013, their 2000 albums Machina/The Machines Of God and Machina Ii: The Friends & Enemies Of Modern Music will be unified into one package. A best-of compilation will also be released in 2013.

Billy Corgan is excited by the partnership with EMI and how this will result in the release of Pumpkins material that's in the vaults. "What makes the deal with EMI groundbreaking is the band has secured the right to all unreleased materials and will be in charge of any additional releases based on our discretion," says Billy Corgan, who founded the band in Chicago in 1988. "In essence, the band has the keys to the warehouse and can release whatever we want, when we want it. EMI totally supports this right, and they are our partners in it."
