Billy Corgan announces experimental album AEGEA

    Amidst recording of two new Smashing Pumpkins album, Billy Corgan has powered through two ambitious live performances based around modular synth. Now, he’s announced the release of a double LP of experimental recordings dubbed AEGEA, which will be released in limited quantity over the coming weeks.

    According to a posting on the Pumpkins’ website, the recordings date back in spring 2007. “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 wrote. Listening back I quite like how AEGEA goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating.”

    The first pressing of AEGEA will be limited to 250 vinyl copies and primarily sold online, though a few copies will be available at his Madame Zuzu’s Teahouse in Highland Park, Illinois. The price tag? $59.95.
