Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong is releasing music he recorded in his bedroom

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.”
