Between the wrestlingexperimental album, and eight-hour live interpretation of the Siddhartha, it’s easy to understand why longtime Smashing Pumpkin fans may be turned off by Billy Corgan these days. But here’s some good news: Corgan still plans to carry through with his plans to reissue Adore, and as he revealed in a new blog posting, the set will include all sorts of goodies.

The reissue will span six discs, including the original album in mono and a new stereo version that was remastered by Bob Ludwig, as well as three discs of unreleased material and a live DVD taken from the band’s 1998 tour. A release is slated for this summer.

In a statement, Corgan said, “One thing that might excite fans of the album is that we were able to go back and locate elements from the original sessions that were stored digitally, but never used; such as some of the brilliant work done by Bon Harris. In that fresh mixes have been commissioned, shedding new light on not only the songs hidden foundations, but their futuristic nature as well. “
