Smashing Pumpkins have announced full details of their long-awaited seventh studio record 'Oceania'.

The album, which was originally due last September, will now be released on June 18 and has been described as an "album within an album" as it is part of their 44-song cycle 'Teargarden By Kaleidyscope', the first songs for which were released in 2009.

'Oceania' will be put out by EMI, who announced earlier this year that they had inked a deal to release the record with Corgan's label Martha's Music. It features a total of 13 tracks.

The album is the band's first recorded effort with their new line-up, which now features Mike Byrne on drums, Nicole Fiorentino on bass and Jeff Schroeder on guitar.

In December last year, Corgan insisted that 'Oceania' was the band's strongest offering since 1995's 'Mellon Collie And The Infinite Sadness'.

The tracklisting for 'Oceania' is as follows:

'The Celestials'
'Violet Rays'
'My Love Is Winter'
'One Diamond, One Heart'
'Pale Horse'
'The Chimera'
