Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong has recorded a new album of Everly Brothers covers with Norah Jones. Foreverly is due out on Reprise Records Nov. 25 and was inspired by The Brothers’ classic Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. “Long Time Gone,” one of the tracks from the album, is already out and streaming below.
Recorded in just nine days, Foreverly attempts to fuse Armstrong and Jones’ voices into something resembling The Everly Brothers’ harmonies. On the record, the duo reinterpret a number of Everly songs, including “Roving Gambler, “Down In The Willow Garden,” “Long Time Gone,” “Who’s Gonna Shoe Your Pretty Little Feet,” and “Barbara Allen,” as well as a number of country classics like Gene Autry’s “That Silver Haired Daddy Of Mine” and Karl Davis’ “Kentucky.”
Armstrong and Jones play guitar and piano on the record, respectively, accompanied by Charlie Burnham on fiddle and Johnny Lam on pedal steel.
