The Hot Press Newsdesk, 01 May 2012
The Smashing Pumkins have unveiled the album cover artwork for their new album Oceania. The cover image was photographed by Richard Shay.
The album, out on June 15 via Martha’s Music/EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution, is the band's seventh studio record to date. The 13-tracker was recorded Billy Corgan’s private Chicago studio, produced by Corgan and Bjorn Thorsrud, and mixed by David Bottrill.
Corgan says of the album: “I've been adamant in stressing that as a group, first and foremost, we are here to make new music together. I'm proud to say that on Oceania, I feel we've cut our own path forward. Jeff, Mike, and Nicole have all made significant contributions to the tone and texture of Oceania, which is an album that is unlike any I've ever made. Yet at the same time I believe it upholds the same musical values I've always pushed for with The Pumpkins, be they progressive, emotional, epic, or restless."
