Billy ‘Pill Popping’ Corgan and his Smashing Pumpkins have – at long, long, infinitely long last – come to an arrangement with EMI Label Services/Caroline Distribution as to the distribution of their new album ‘Oceania’. An instalment of the band’s 44-song concept opus ‘Teargarden By Kaleidyscope’, said LP is released – for all those who still care or remember – on 19 Jun.

The exclusive EMI deal stems from Corgan and co’s wish to make the album simultaneously available on an international scale (with the possible exceptions of Canada, Brazil and Australia, who are excluded from the EMI distribution zone), without pre-releases or press/radio previews spoiling any of their ‘Oceania’ fun.

Says “thrilled” EMI GM Mike Harris: “Everybody at EMI Label Services is looking forward to working closely with Billy and the band to help them deliver their vision and their music to fans around the world”.
