Mary Star of the Sea is the only album by American alternative rock band Zwan, It was released on January 28, 2003. "Honestly" and "Lyric" were released as singles. The album is named both for the Blessed Virgin Mary, from whom Billy Corgan claimed to find comfort and guidance, and for the Catholicchurch in Key West, Florida where he spent time during Zwan's early rehearsals. Corgan announced the band's dissolution seven months after the album's release, which he later attributed to internal conflict.
The album received mostly positive reviews. David Browne of Entertainment Weekly named Mary Star of the Sea the sixth best album of 2003. The Alternative Press called the album a "return to form" for Corgan. The album debuted at #3 in the U.S. selling 90,000 copies in its first week, but quickly descended the charts, and fell short of the sales of any Smashing Pumpkins album.
A deluxe edition of the album was also released, which included a bonus DVD entitled For Your Love, a 40-minute collage of interviews, studio performances, and miscellaneous footage, some of which comes from the aborted Djali Zwan album/film. The songs listed on the DVD are "My Life and Times", "Rivers We Can't Cross", "Mary Star of the Sea", "Love Lies in Ruin", "For Your Love", "Down, Down, Down", "A New Poetry", "W.P.", "Jesus, I", "God's Gonna Set This World on Fire", "To Love You", "Consumed", a different rendition of "My Life and Times", "Danger Boy", and "Spilled Milk", but they are not clips of the full songs.
