Smashing Pumpkins To Re-Release "Siamese Dream" With Original Artwork

While Smashing Pumpkins fans eagerly await the band's next album, their 1993 album, "Siamese Dream" will be re-entering stores on November 16.

A rather unusual re-release, fans should be aware that sonically, there is nothing new included on the "new" "Siamese Dream"; it will feature the album's original track listing and mixes. However, the CD will include the album's original 20-page booklet, which was reduced in size to fit onto a six-page booklet shortly after the album's original release.

The Pumpkins are scheduled to release their next album, which is as yet untitled, on February 15 (see "Smashing Pumpkins Join Ozzy In Osbourne Management Stable").

Guitarist-singer Billy Corgan and guitarist James Iha recently performed as an acoustic duo over the weekend at Neil Young's annual acoustic Bridge concert. They performed a new song, "The Age Of Innocence," which Corgan hinted might end up on an upcoming album
