Smashing Pumpkins’ 1998 album Adore was an album that didn’t really resonate with fans. Despite the ho-hum reaction towards it, the album was certified platinum and was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Alternative Music Album. This summer, the band will reissue the album with a boatload of bonus material. The six-disc box set features the original album, a previously unreleased mono version of the album, three discs of unreleased material and a live DVD from their 1998 charity tour.
Frontman Billy Corgan spoke of the reissue:
“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. “
As previously noted, this reissue is slated for a summer release.
