Released today! From their website: In the Fall of 1993, between contracts with Capitol and RCA, The Smithereens ventured into Crystal Sound Studios NYC to write and record a new album for their own label. The results of those one month marathon recording sessions is this album, unheard by the outside world until now, and appropriately titled “Lost Album”.

I'm a huge Smithereens fan and while it's great to hear the late Pat DiNizio's voice on new material, the album leaves me a little flat. The first song in particular, "Out of this World", sounds like "Top of the Pops" from their 1991 "Blow Up" album. Oh well, the surviving members of the band did the best they could with the material they had to work with, I reckon.
