The indie variant includes three exclusive screen-printed inserts, each inspired by the three acts of ATUM.

ATUM is a rock opera presented in three acts by inimitable American rock band The Smashing Pumpkins. The album tells an epic interplanetary story set in the not-too-distant future, though the songs themselves respectively stand on their own in the Pumpkins pantheon. This is the final installment in a concept album trilogy, which began with 1995’s Melancholy and the Infinite Sadness and then continued with 2000's Machina/The Machines of God. The album features three original members of the band—William Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy Chamberlin—as well as longtime guitarist Jeff Schroeder. Corgan had been developing the idea for the rock opera for years, and the pandemic gave him the time off the road to meticulously complete it in the grandiose way he had intended.

The album will be accompanied by a 33-song podcast in partnership with iHeart, in which Corgan will explain each song, tell stories, and chat with guests. Episodes will be released weekly in the 33 weeks leading up to the album release.

One act of the album will be released digitally every 11 weeks to match the timeline of the podcast.
