Billie Joe did a short interview with NME to promote his upcoming No Fun Mondays album release and he said that the cover album came about originally as just a way to pass the time while stuck at home due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
I did ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ first, and it all just started off as something to just keep me busy because I knew that the rest of the year was getting cancelled. I released it on my Instagram to fans and the response was really good. Everybody was saying that it was just nice to hear some music and feel a little bit normal. The sentiment was right.
Bille was also asked in the interview if we can expect new Green Day music soon.
It’s possible. Whether we do a full-length album or an EP or just a song, we have a lot of different options. It’s a matter of whenever the right moment happens. That’s the beauty of the way you can put music out these days. You don’t have to wait for any gatekeeper to tell you that the timing is right.
You can track all the latest news on Green Day’s next album on our Album 14 page.
We also got a new music video today from Green Day’s side project The Network for the track ‘Flat Earth’ from their recently released Trans Am EP.
The Network will release a full-length album on December 4th called Money Money 2020 Part II: We Told Ya So! but there’s been no word yet on a physical release so it appears at least initially it will be digital-only.
