Adore Reissue

Billy Corgan Announces Smashing Pumpkins ‘Adore’ Reissue Details

Billy Corgan Announces Smashing Pumpkins ‘Adore’ Reissue Details; Smashing Pumpkins darkest album to be given a 6 disc deluxe makeover,

Just a few months back, I reported that Billy Corgan was putting the finishing touches on a deluxe reissue of Smashing Pumpkins’ 1998 album ‘Adore.’ And today he put up an official press release on the band’s website.

But in typical dramatic fashion, the mercurial frontman has a bone to pick; this time it’s with Amazon.com who supposedly dished out the details before his intended announcement. So the press release (you can read it in full here) serves not just as a marketing purpose, but as an anti-corporate diatribe as well; I’m very upset that an online retailer broke their agreement, posting up the tracks up before we could do it here first AS THEY’D ASKED.

The press release also notes that while ‘Adore’ was coldly received upon its initial release, it has gained stature over the years, as Corgan states; I love Adore, but for a while, my opinion of the record was so intertwined with people’s reactions to it at the time. I would say that my kind of iffy feelings lingered long past the point when a lot of fans seemed to come back around to the record–which seemed to really start happening around seven years ago. Now Adore is name-checked by fans constantly.

All the Smashing Pumpkins reissues have been grandiose, and this album is no exception. The box set will feature 107 tracks including demos, mono takes, and live recordings. Also included will be a DVD of a 1998 band performance.

Below is the full track list. You can order via Amazon by clicking on the product image below (sorry Billy). The box set will be officially released on September 23rd.
