Ava Adore Puff Daddy Remix

The Smashing Pumpkins “Ava Adore” (Puff Daddy Remix)

On September 23, The Smashing Pumpkins will be reissuing their classic 1998 album Adore (considered by some to be the last real Smashing Pumpkins album), which will feature unreleased versions and remixes of songs along with the reissued ones. Today, a remix of the the single “Ava Adore” by Puff Daddy (yes, he was still called Puff Daddy back then) has surfaced after apparently being under wraps for the past 16 years.

The track itself is a rather bizarre blend, as the production has the feel of a ’90s big budget movie soundtrack (think Batman Forever), Billy Corgan’s vocals are unchanged from the original, which is definitely jarring. A more “hip hop centric” beat has been added, but the cheesy sounding strings immediately take away any possible edge that the beat could bring. Overproduction is the operative word. Sometimes, things are better left in the vault, and it seems like Diddy and Billy just weren’t meant to be together.

Take a listen below.
