Smashing Pumpkins fans: Music News reported that Billy Corgan will be announcing his plans for a new Pumpkins album, Oceania. Apparently, the new album is being developed as a full online experience. Is Corgan taking queues from Arcade Fire and Bjork, infusing technology into the listeners experience? Will this ditch effort make Smashing Pumpkins modern work more interesting? We’ll see.

Corgan plans to jump on the bandwagon of music direct to fans by release each song individually, presumably in digital format. He will reveal all during the ‘The End Of Business As Usual’ seminar by Brian Solis of the Altimeter Group on Monday March 12 at the Austin Convention Centre.
