Smashing the Pumpkins, What a thrill!!!

Oceania is the new album by The Smashing Pumpkins, out June 19.
A new challenge by JPG in collaboration with the band is to interpret the title of the song through photography. What a challenge this is! Since this is a new album and not yet release, the lyrics are not available yet, except for a few. How can we interpret a song title if we don't know what the song writer wanted to convey?
I have to say that this challenge gave a renewed enthusiasm on my part.
I begun reviewing my photographs that had been forgotten trying to come up with the appropriate images.
I hope in any way, I was able to interpret what Smashing Pumpkins wanted to relay to their fans.
A short introduction to the album:
"The album they titled Oceania was recorded at singer/guitarist Billy Corgan's private studio in Chicago with his bandmates: guitarist Jeff Schroeder, drummer Mike Byrne and bassist/vocalist Nicole Fiorentino. The powerful 13-song collection
Oceania was created by the band as a true album experience for listeners to fully immerse themselves in the songs and musical performances. For its release, the band is making the best efforts for all the fans to hear it at the same time as press or radio. In 2012, The Pumpkins will perform Oceania."
