William Patrick Corgan added an odd song to the setlist on the October 20 date of his tour: Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball".

The Smashing Pumpkins frontman covered the track in Toronto's Queen Elizabeth and the result was as stunning as it was surprising.

Watch the video below:

This is not Corgan's first nod to the pop singer. In 2014, he told French radio show Oüi FM Rock Sessions interviewers he thought Cyrus was better than 99.9% of pop stars and that he had been approached to write a song for her.

Corgan is currently on tour supporting his second solo album, Ogilala, released on October 13.
