Billy Corgan and Smashing Pumpkins are no strangers to covers. They’ve just completed an acoustic tour which saw the band, joined by original guitarist James Iha, take on songs by Bob Dylan, Hole, Prince, David Bowie and even Natalie Imbruglia.
That tour is over but Corgan still had plenty more covers that he wanted to smash out taking to his tea shop Madame ZuZu’s with bandmate Jeff Schroeder for a small acoustic show.
During the set the pair covered Rolling Stones’ Angie, David Bowie’s Space Oddity and Bob Dylan’s Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door. Footage has emerged though of their cover of The Velvet Underground’s Who Loves The Sun.
Who Loves The Sun is from Velvet Underground’s fourth album Loaded, the final LP Lou Reed recorded with the band.
A couple more songs were posted by fans on Instagram but Who Loves The Sun was captured in full and is below for your Sunday night easy listening.
