Billy Corgan Releasing Limited Edition ‘Experimental’ Album, Recorded in 2007
If you’re, you know, really into Billy Corgan, has he got a deal for you.
The Smashing Pumpkins frontman recorded AEGEA, an “experimental in nature” album of material, in 2007, and now he’s finally letting it see the light of day via a limited edition release in the near future, Rolling Stone reports.
AEGEA will be released via just 250 vinyl copies initially, with each disc annotated and hand-numbered by Corgan himself. They’re set to retail for $60.
“As a work, AEGEA is experimental in nature, and comes across as more a soundtrack to some lost foreign film than the kind of music I’m usually associated with,” Corgan related in a post on his website. “Listening back I quite like how AEGEA goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating.”
AEGEA is set for release sometime in the next six to eight weeks.
