Like other responsible (like you and me, right?), Billie Joe Armstrong is staying away from other people in a way to fight the spread of COVID-19. And when a musician has time on his/her hands, what are they likely to do?
Armstrong released a bedroom performance of “I Think We’re Alone Now,” the pop classic released by Tommy James and the Shondells in 1967 and later covered by post-punk Lene Lovich in 1978 and popstar Tiffany in 1987.
Here’s what Billie had to say: “Dear friends, While we’ve all been in quarantine I’ve been reflecting on the things that matter the most in my life. Family, friends and of course music. I recorded a cover of Tommy James and the Shondells “I think we’re alone now” in my bedroom.”
