Smashing Pumpkins release four versions of ‘Zeitgeist’

Oh Billy how we used to love you so. Seems Mr. Corgan now has more in common with the blood-sucking leech Courtney Love.

P4k is reporting that the long-awaited (some might say anticipated, however, we’re not sure we’re exactly excited for the new released) Smashing Pumpkins album will be released in four different versions. With the big-box stores Best Buy and Target each getting one version of the record, iTunes getting the other version and then every record store you love to shop in getting yet another version.

The catch is that Best Buy, Target, and iTunes are all getting a unique bonus track for their albums, while indie record stores and local places are getting a ho-hum standard issue set.

Now, while Pitchfork Media seems indignant about this, making the not-so-true case that true fans will have to go out and buy all three albums just to get the bonus tracks, it’s safe to assume that true fans will probably have a pirated copy of the album four weeks before its release. And we’re guessing it won’t be difficult to find those three bonus tracks floating somewhere.
