Billie Joe Armstrong announces the release of his quarantine covers album, No Fun Mondays

Ever since this pandemic began back in March, Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has been keeping busying by recording cover songs at home for the band’s YouTube channel. All those recordings–14 in all–will be collected together for an album entitled No Fun Mondays. I mean, why not? The songs are there and it costs zero to upload the tracks for streaming and downloads. Come November 27, the album will also be out on CD and vinyl.
