Over 2 years ago (June 19th 2012) the Smashing Pumpkins launched their last album, Oceania. It was called “An Album Within an Album” in connection with the ongoing Teargarden release.

During its 1st week it reached the #1 on the independent record chart and #4 on the Billboard charts.

The Smashing Pumpkins chose to play Oceania in full and in order while on tour for the album in the United States. They would later release a live DVD of their New York performance called Oceania: Live in NYC.

Keeping in line with other tracks released with the Teargarden release the album was made available for free to listen to. iTunes originally streamed the full and still to today the album is streaming from the Smashing Pumpkins “official” youtube account.
