The Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan is set to release a limited edition album of experimental recordings.

The record, titled “Aegea,” was made by Corgan in 2007, and he admits the music is a significant departure from his usual style.

He says, “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. Listening back I quite like how “Aegea” goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating.”

Just 250 vinyl copies of the two-disc album, priced at nearly $60, will be printed initially, and each will be hand-numbered and annotated by the musician.

The album is expected to be released later this year.
