Billie Joe + Norah – Long Time Gone (Everly Brothers cover)

artworks-000060375201-vvhh2b-t500x500Well, this is a pleasant surprise. Apparently, Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) and Norah Jones got together for a collaboration of epic proportions. I know what you are thinking: it certainly sounds like something you wouldn’t normally check out, but stick with me here. As CoS tells it, the duo decided to record a cover of the Everly Brothers 1958 album, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us after Armstrong became infatuated with the album. By way of mutual acquaintance Stevie Wonder (of course), Armstrong called in Jones and came away with 12 tracks on Foreverly. Think She & Him with more twang. Stream “Long Time Gone” below and pre-order Foreverly on Amazon and iTunes (due out 11/25).
