The Smashing Pumpkins have an enormous back catalogue of music, they have sold more than 30 million albums and won multiple Grammy awards and they have no intention of stopping just yet.
The band have a new album coming out, Oceania and they have just unveiled this cover art for it. This will be Smashing Pumpkins 7th Studio album and will be out on the 19th June on Martha’s Music/EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution.
The album cover image is a photograph taken by Richard Shay, son of Chicago legend Art Shay.
Oceania was recorded at singer/guitarist Billy Corgan’s private studio in Chicago with the rest of the band : guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne, and bassist/vocalist Nicole Fiorentino. The 13-song collection (full tracklisting below) was produced by Corgan and Bjorn Thorsrud (a frequent collaborator with both the Pumpkins and Zwan) and mixed by David Bottrill. As part of their 44-song work-in-progress, Teargarden by Kaleidyscope, Oceania is “an album within an album.”
