Green Day: Billie Joe Armstrong releases quarantine cover I Think We’re Alone Now

Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has released a cover of the Tommy James and the Shondells classic, "I Think We're Alone Now."

“Dear friends,” Armstrong posts, “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.

“I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation, at least we can be alone together.”

The title track to James’ third album topped the charts in several countries and was a US No. 4 hit for the rocker in 1967.

Last month, Green Day were among the first acts to revise their 2020 tour plans when they postponed a series of dates across Asia over concerns about the current coronavirus outbreak.

The band were set to perform in Singapore, Thailand, the Philippines, Taipei, Hong Kong, South Korea and Japan through March as they promote their new “Father Of All” album.
