All the fine print regarding the Smashing Pumpkins’ upcoming album, Oceania, was made available over the weekend.
Dubbed as “an album within an album” (for you Inception fans out there), Oceania will be a 12-track affair, released by EMI on June 19.
Here’s the track listing:
3. The Celestials
4. Violet Rays
5. My Love Is Winter
6. One Diamond, One Heart
9. Pale Horse
10. The Chimera
As the ambitious “album within an album” description may imply, this record is part of the Pumpkins’ elaborate, 44-song Teargarden by Kaleidyscope project.
Many of Oceania‘s songs have been previewed live over the past few months. An ambitious project as this wouldn’t be complete without a long, drawn-out opus such as the sprawling, 10+ minute title track. Preview that song below.
