CHICAGO, April 9 (UPI) -- Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan plans to release a limited number of copies of his new solo album, AEGEA.

"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," Corgan says of the album on The Smashing Pumpkins website. "Listening back I quite like how AEGEA goes along, as it has qualities that are both meditative and alien; but not alienating."

The album was recorded in 2007, and the musician will "hand-number and annotate" 250 vinyl copies of the two-record set for distribution. The limited edition copies will sell for $60 each, and go on sale in six to eight weeks.

Corgan and The Smashing Pumpkins recently announced their intent to release two new albums -- Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night -- in 2015. The band hopes to debut a new single by the end of 2014.

"For those interested in sound, think: 'guitars, guitars, guitars, and more guitars," Corgan wrote of Monuments to an Elegy and Day for Night. "But more so on the epic side of things than, say, grossly metallic."
