Smashing Pumpkins Prepping 6-Disc 'Adore' Reissue
Published Apr 10, 2014Smashing Pumpkins fans have a lot to look forward to these days. Not only do the band have a pair of albums planned for 2015, but frontman Billy Corgan has an experimental double LP coming out this spring. Now Corgan has added to the pile by announcing a reissue of their divisive 1998 album Adore.
This is the latest instalment in the Pumpkins' ongoing plan to reissue all of their early albums; previous reports suggested that this Adore reissue was originally supposed to come out in 2012. According to a new post on the band's website, it's now slated for a summer release, although the exact date has yet to be set
The album will arrive in a six-disc set. This will include a stereo remaster (by Bob Ludwig), the album in mono (on CD for the first time), a live DVD from 1994, and three discs' worth of unreleased material.
Corgan said in a statement, "One thing that might excite fans of the album is that we were able to go back and locate elements from the original sessions that were stored digitally, but never used; such as some of the brilliant work done by Bon Harris. In that fresh mixes have been commissioned, shedding new light on not only the songs hidden foundations, but their futuristic nature as well."
