The Skinny: The Smashing Pumpkins have released their seventh studio album Oceania on June 19th. Part of their 44-song work-in-progress Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, Oceania is “an album within an album” and was created by the band as an immersive album experience for listeners. All 13 tracks premiered simultaneously to fans and critics alike the week before release, with no specific single chosen to herald the new album.
Oceania was recorded at singer and guitarist Billy Corgan’s private studio in Chicago with his bandmates: guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist and vocalist Nicole Fiorentino. The album is streaming in full at SPOceania.com where fans can sign up for the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club for the latest news and updates. Oceania is available now, in stores and online.
