Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan has released a limited edition album of experimental recordings made in 2007.

Titled 'AEGEA', the double-vinyl album is available in an edition of 250, hand-numbered and annotated by Corgan, with the first 50 copies on aqua-colored vinyl. The record was being sold through madamezuzus.com but is already sold out. You can listen to a preview of the record by clicking below.

Speaking about the release, Corgan said: "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."

Corgan has recently been turning in a series of esoteric performances at his Chicago teahouse Madame ZuZu's. In February, around 40 people squeezed into the café to catch a glimpse of Corgan play an eight-hour long gig based on author Herman Hesse's 1922 novel 'Siddhartha'. At the end of March, he played a gig inspired by the poetry of 13th century mystic Rumi.
