the Smashing Pumpkins next album Oceania will be released on June 19th 2012 via EMI. Peter Katsis who is apparently a manager for the Pumpkins said
“The Smashing Pumpkins created Oceania as an album experience, and it is intended for the process of the release to follow a path of inclusion, so that best efforts are made for all the fans [to] hear it at the same time as press or radio. We were excited to find partners in EMI Label Services that were equally passionate about the plan for the album release as well as being huge fans of the Pumpkins.”
In the EMI press release it notes that the agreement between SP and EMI covers the world excluding Canada, Brazil and Australia. In a separate press release from Universal Music Canada it states that they will have exclusive rights for Oceania.
