¬чера вечером фронтмен Smashing Pumpkins Ѕилли орган сделал видео обращение своим фанатам в котором рассказывал про переиздани€, SP архивы, новый альбом и предсто€щий тур.
Hello everyone, itТs Billy Corgan, Smashing Pumpkins. Currently in the studio, finishing Oceania, I hope. Also getting ready for our tour of the US and Europe, so itТs a very busy time. IТve got a few details to update you on whatТs going on with the archival reissues and the debut of the Smashing Pumpkins Record Club, what weТre calling the SPRC. WeТre going to offer a free track to start with, in exchange for your email address, because we all know thatТs so valuable. So you have to sign up for the Record Club, itТs free to sign up, but youТll get a free song. And the first song weТre going to release for free is a demo recording of УDrown,Ф which we found in going through the archives. It was recorded roughly around the end of Т91, early Т92, somewhere in the Gish touring we were writing songs which we hoped were going to be for Siamese Dream. And I believe in a couple days we recorded five demos: УLuna,Ф УSTP,Ф УDrown,Ф УSilver[fuck],Ф and something else I canТt remember. And so this is the actual demo from that time. And as part of what weТre going to do here with the Record Club, weТre going to provide certain materials that the band worked with to make its decisions. So although we eventually hope to offer this demo for sale, remixed and updated to 96k 24-bit status, which all our releases will be available as 96k 24-bit unmastered files, the УDrownФ here that youТll have will be the actual rough mix from the time. Which we actually think is kind of cool, because even though itТs a little bit of a lower fidelity than weТll eventually offer the song at, you do get a sense of what the band was listening to at the timeЕ I think IТve already said that.
Also know that weТre considering all sorts of different options, coming across these materials. One I think people will find really interesting, is we found about two plus hours of Gish-related working materials that would have been our rough mixes and things like that, at the time of making the Gish record. And weТve got about four, five, or six hours of Siamese Dream-related materials that really kind of give you insight into the recording process. You hear all sorts of things: rough vocals that werenТt used, songs before they had particular lyrics, itТs really interesting, even for me, to listen through chronologically, because you can really hear some of the progression. So we may be offering those as sort of audio documentaries, possibly with or without commentary, so weТre exploring those options. And we may do something, where, those types of projects, weТll offer on a basis where weТll see who wants to invest in it initially as a start up, to see if thereТs enough interest to actually have those materials come out. IТd like to see them come out, but obviously we got a lot going on right now.
So yes, weТre prepping for the tour, itТs going to be very interesting, itТs going to be a debut of some of the Oceania songs. IТm halfway through the singing at least, IТve got maybe five more songs to go on the singing, so weТre getting pretty close. We start mixing September 1, we hope that the music will start to be available to be heard somewhere in the November area. WeТre working out those details now. Oceania will have a commercial release. Because we found particularly in Europe and other countries outside the US, thatЕ weТre finding it hard for people to realize that Teargarden is even in progress and that the tracks are available. So weТre still going to try to go back through some of the traditional chains to put people into contact with the record. Particularly because itТs an album, we do want it to be heard as an album. And uh, what else?
So, I know thereТs a bit of confusion, but Oceania will be able to be heard relatively soon. So I saw some people, I think on my twitter feed, who were freaking out, saying why is the album delayed? The albumТs not delayed, weТre totally on schedule, actually, itТs rare, because usually weТre not on schedule. So thatТs about it for now, weТre really excited, super busy time, super busy time. ItТs often, in one room we have, we have, weТre working on Siamese Dream reissue materials and I walk back in the other room and I have to work on a solo for a song. So, IТm living in about 30 different eras at once. But itТs exciting, itТs exciting to hear the music, and for those of you who havenТt seen my Twitter feed, listening to the unmastered files of Siamese Dream and then the Bob Ludwig mastered files of Siamese DreamЕ mindblowing. Best IТve ever heard the record, since it was recorded. IТd accepted long ago that you would never hear the record at the level of fidelity that we recorded it at and now that momentТs here when you can hear the record like that, and wow, stunning, because I hadnТt heard it like that for eighteen years, and it blew my mind. And everybody around here is just freaked out how good it sounds. So IТm really excited, itТs gonna be a fantastic time, and just one more little tidbit of information. WeТre looking at maybe including a DVD extra disc, with theЕ so like Gish would have an extra disc of released and unreleased materials, some things obvious, obviously something like УDrownФ belongs on the Gish extra disc, but thereТs gonna be unreleased stuff, Soundworks demos, things like that, and then maybe also a DVD component, weТve unearthed some footage in concerts and things like that, some really great stuff.
So, super exciting time, I think IТve said that about forty times. Honestly, I may not look it, cause IТm just tired. Right now IТm in the corner over here working on lyrics. ThereТs the, thatТs the Mellon Collie piano there, from my old Victorian house. IТm working on lyrics for a song called УFour Winds BlowФ or УFour Winds ChimeФ or УFour WindsФ something, УFourФ nothing. And IТll be singing that later today. So weТll put up a fresh update, with more information on the УDrownФ release relatively soon when we actually launch the record club, but we wanted to start putting out those details now. And to be pretty simple: sign up for the record club for free, just give us your email, so we can stay in contact with you and let you know whatТs going on, because obviously we want everyone to participate in this process on every level, both encouraging and also helping fund some of these projects, which will help these materials come out so everybody can share themЕ thatТs the great thing about the internet now is, we all can connect on these issues. I know I want these materials in everybodyТs hand so, itТs finally time, the time is finally here, finally no more talkЕ so OK, talk to you soon. Take Care. Over and out. BC out. Or something like that.
