As Smashing Pumpkins‘ fans get ready for the reissue of the band’s 1998 LP, ‘Adore,’ Rolling Stone has unveiled a remix of the album’s first single, ‘Ava Adore,’ by none other than Puff Daddy, a.k.a Diddy, a.k.a. Sean Combs.

The remixed tune will be a part of the upcoming reissue scheduled to be released on Sept. 23. Strangely, this isn’t a “brand-new” remix; on July 14, 1998, MTV reported that Combs lent his skills to the track but provided no specific details as to when it would be released. Sixteen years and a month later, the track has made its debut. Listen to it via Rolling Stone here.

Combs’ vision of ‘Ava Adore’ loses the electric guitars for an orchestra which seem to only amplify frontman Billy Corgan’s piercing vocals. To compare the remix to the original, check out the Pumpkins’ official music video for the tune:
