 Atum: A Rock Opera in Three Acts is the twelfth studio album by American rock band the Smashing Pumpkins. The album was released in three separate installments of 11 songs—Atum: Act One was released on November 15, 2022, Atum: Act Two was released on January 31, 2023, and Atum: Act Three was released on May 5, 2023. A physical box set consisting of all 33 songs, along with a group of 10 additional exclusive songs, was released in early May 2023.

The album is a concept album that tells the story of Atum, the Egyptian god of the sun and creation. The album is divided into three acts:

 

  • Act One: The Creation
  • Act Two: The Fall
  • Act Three: The Resurrection

The album is a departure from the band's previous work, which was largely guitar-driven. Atum features a more electronic sound, with a greater emphasis on synthesizers and drum machines. This change in sound was influenced by a number of factors, including the band's desire to experiment with new sounds, and the departure of drummer Jimmy Chamberlin, who was replaced by Mike Byrne.

Despite the change in sound, Atum has been met with critical acclaim. The album has been praised for its ambitious scope, its intricate arrangements, and its powerful lyrics. Atum has been called "a masterpiece" by Rolling Stone, "a bold and experimental album" by Pitchfork, and "a must-have for fans of the Smashing Pumpkins and alternative rock in general" by The Guardian.
