Green Day
frontman Billie Joe
Armstrong
has continued his No Fun Mondays lockdown cover
series – hear his version of Billy Bragg classic ‘A
New England’ below.

Throughout the coronavirus lockdown,
Armstrong has taken on a wide range of new covers every week.

“Welcome to No Fun Monday on a Friday because no one knows
what day it is anyway,” Armstrong wrote on the description for
the new cover, which was shared on Friday (July 10).

“I love this song penned by Billy Bragg. Also a great version
by Kirsty MacColl.”

Some of the Green Day frontman’s previousNo Fun
Mondays covers include Kim Wilde’s ‘Kids
In America’,
Starjets’ ‘War Stories’
The
Avengers’ ‘Corpus Christi’
The
Bangles’ ‘Manic Monday’
Tommy
James and the Shondells’ track ‘I Think We’re Alone
Now’
 and Johnny
Thunders’ ‘You Can’t Put Your Arms Around A
Memory’
.

Most recently, he
took on a version of John Lennon’s protest anthem ‘Gimme Some
Truth’.

As well as learning a host of new covers,
Armstrong has also been using his time in quarantine to work on
upcoming Green Day material
.

Green Day released new album ‘Father Of All…’ last year,
which
NME called their “jukebox†record in a four-star review.


The band were recently forced to postpone part of the European leg
of their Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer on the back
of ‘Father Of All…’, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Billy Bragg, meanwhile,
recently spoke to NME about activism, Black Lives Matter, Taylor
Swift and more
. “With the world falling apart some things
stay in place,†he said. “There’s always something to write
about, but particularly at the moment. Whether it’s the pandemic
and the implications of that, the ramifications of the killing of
George Floyd, you know.

“I came into politics through Rock Against Racism, and I’ve
seen things I never thought I’d see – in terms of the way that
the younger generation has reacted. The idea of them not being
political has gone in the dumpster.â€
