billy3 Passion Pit Cover The Smashing Pumpkins Tonight Tonight[lastfm]Passion Pit [/lastfm]have covered the [lastfm]Smashing Pumpkins[/lastfm]‘ hit “Tonight Tonight” for Levi’s Pioneer Sessions.

Lead vocalist [lastfm]Michael Angelakos[/lastfm] reaches an even higher pitch than [lastfm]Billy Corgan [/lastfm]can on the track, and their version is said to be more spacey and less anthemic than the original one. The band also brings in its synth-heavy approach to make the tune their own.

The original song appeared on the Pumpkins’ 1995 album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness.

The new cover can be heard at the Levi’s Pioneer Sessions’ website.

Other artists who have recently covered songs for Levi’s include [lastfm]She and Him[/lastfm], with their version of [lastfm]Ricky Nelson[/lastfm]‘s “Fools Rush In,” and the [lastfm]Dirty Projectors[/lastfm], with their rendition of [lastfm]Bob Dylan[/lastfm]‘s “I Dreamed I Saw St. Augustine.”

Passion Pit are currently out on the road touring across North America
