And it’s not simply a rundown of Everly Brothers hits. Released Nov. What’s the story behind Foreverly? The first time I heard it, I didn’t know that they had made this record in the middle of a string of pop hits that they had in the ’50s, and I love that stuff. And I loved the harmonies and started getting into the stories and how dark they are, and the old traditional songs that they were singing. I love digging deep as far as music history [and] rock and roll and folk and the blues and stuff. Norah Jones: He called me and he really wanted to do this project — I guess he had it in mind for a while, but I was just off tour, so I was really tired.

AP — Billie Joe Armstrong has a future in sales if the music thing doesn’t work out. Just ask Norah Jones, who had every intention of turning down an interesting but odd pitch from the Green Day frontman because of tour exhaustion when she got on the phone with him. Twenty minutes later, she’d agreed to an unlikely partnership that produced “Foreverly,” a loving recreation of an all-but-forgotten Everly Brothers album out this week that is one of the year’s more left-field releases.
We kind of made an agreement to try a few days in the studio and see how it went without any big commitments or anything. So that was nice for me to not feel a lot of pressure. We kind of eased in. Honestly, it happened so fast. All of a sudden we were making the record, and five days later we had most of the songs. The project is the first for Armstrong since he entered rehab for substance abuse last year during the release of an ambitious trilogy of albums.
Talking by phone from Oakland, Calif. The “Foreverly” project taps into those sunny feelings and is a rare venture away from his Green Day bandmates. He was transfixed by the pioneering rock and country duo’s harmonies — something his band always incorporated in their music through their love of Husker Du — and the dark subject matter lurking in the lyrics, yet obscured by the beauty of the Everlys’ simple arrangements.
Norah Jones And Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong Prep Everly Brothers-Inspired Album
Now, though, a fresh collaboration reminds us of a different style — combination rather than contrast. In one of the most unlikely pairings in pop , Billie Joe Armstrong from fluorescent pop punks Green Day has teamed up with Norah Jones, the winsome daughter of Ravi Shankar known for her honeyed voice and taste for country and supper-club jazz.
Even more surprising, perhaps, is how their voices mesh together. Rather than having male growl contrast with a lighter female reply, Armstrong and Jones create uncannily compatible harmonies, a fine tribute to the Everly Brothers that inspired their album of traditional songs with the wince-inducing title Foreverly. In doing so, they reinvigorate a style of vocal pairing seemingly forgotten in favour of more abrasive juxtapositions.

Norah Jones new album is a ‘Pick Me Up’ for troubling times
It’s time for Tuesday Reviewsday our weekly new music segment. His production looks back fondly on ’80s eurodance, Prince-ly purple haze, and smooth jazz sax. Guest spots from members of Dirty Projectors, Chairlift, and others. He walks this great line between black and white, gay and straight, brain and body, foreign and familiar, and isn’t afraid to forge his own path even as his cache grows as a proven hit-maker. Great story, even greater artist in the making.
He experiments with drone both using effects such as tape loops, and sheer manual dexterity via flurries of notes , and also incorporates analog synths into his live performances, where improvisation plays a large part.

Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones team up for Everly Brothers covers album
The punk-pop mainstay and the jazz chanteuse have completed Foreverly, a track-for-track redo of the siblings’ classic, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us. For this unlikely duet, Jones and Armstrong learned some of the most beloved vocal harmonies in all of folk and country music. It took just nine days to record the 12 songs; the duo rendezvoused in New York, working with bassist Tim Luntzel and drummer Dan Rieser, and the album will be released on 25 November.
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Billie Joe Armstrong has a future in sales if the music thing doesn’t work out. Just ask Norah Jones, who had every intention.
That meant the move was quite natural. In the intervening years, she explored her soulful sound over four more albums, all of which earned top 20 status in Ireland, and which added acoustic guitar, country music and indie pop to her blend. She also worked with a range of peers from Ray Charles to Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, an unlikely pairing with whom she recorded an even unlikelier Everly Brothers tribute album.
Now 37, her personal life has forged forward too. Yet the manner in which her previous album was pigeonholed as a break-up album has left its mark. I think if something inspires a song, go for it, put it all out there. This time around, she intends to bring her two children — aged two and three months — along for the ride.
Billie Joe Armstrong and Norah Jones record Everly Brothers cover album
The two have bonded over their love of early rock era pioneers the Everly Brothers, and they’re re-interpreting 12 songs on a disc called ‘ Foreverly. The album, ‘Foreverly,’ reworks songs from the Everly Brothers’ album ‘Songs Our Daddy Taught Us,’ which itself featured the Everly Brothers’ take on traditional songs written and recorded by other artists. A lyric video for ‘Long Time Gone’ has surfaced and the lyrics scrolling across the screen are set against the backdrop of a woman ridding herself of memories of her past love while packing up and leaving the residence they once shared.
While the clip, seen above, was shot in present day, the set pieces and clothing appear to have a more dated look, mirroring the music that Armstrong and Jones are covering. The other new song to surface from the ‘Foreverly’ album is titled ‘Silver Haired Daddy of Mine’ and it can be heard below. I liked the whole concept that this was something taught to them, and now it’s being taught to me.
Green Day’s frontman ditches the punk-pop and joins singer for a remake of the classic, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, writes Sean.
By Chuck Arnold. But people have mentioned it to me later. And it makes a lot of sense. Music is comforting. Once you release it, you kind of release any expectations for how they experience it. Still, even Jones has to admit that dropping her latest album right now is a tricky proposition. A lot of the songs — even though they were written before all of this stuff — feel like they were written for this. To keep her musical mojo going during quarantine, Jones has been performing livestream shows on her Facebook page.
And it goes both ways, I gotta say. It has also given the notoriously private star — who has a 6-year-old son and a 4-year-old daughter with a musician husband whose identity has not been revealed — a break from playing Mommy. Jones has had another musical ritual that has given her quarantine comfort.
Billie Joe Armstrong + Norah Jones Foreverly LP
Billie Joe Armstrong was brought into this world on February 17, , the youngest of six children. His father, Andy, was a part time jazz musician and a truck driver for Safeway, while his mother was a waitress at a local restaurant named Rod’s Hickory Pit. Billie started singing when he was just 5 years old.

Kudos to Billie Joe and Norah for covering all of Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, an Everly Brothers album recorded well before the pop-punk frontman and the smooth chanteuse were even born. On this remake, the duo sing and play with fan devotion and no irony — however maudlin the lyrics get. The near-flawless original — itself an homage to old songs passed down to the brothers — was stripped down to acoustic guitar, bass and vocals.

Billie Joe Armstrong, Norah Jones perform rare show
When the average listener thinks of the Everly Brothers, many thoughts come to mind. One is that if their music was a color, it would be beige. It is intended more to suggest a safe, mellow kind of sound. Certainly what you would expect from folk torch songs.
Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and singer Norah Jones have appeared in a rare concert together, playing songs they recorded for an.
Her famous and famously distant father, Ravi Shankar, died in , just before Jones started her own family. Five names. Few artists in history have exploded onto the scene as quietly as Jones. Then she spent the next decade-plus seemingly attempting to shed that coffeehouse-singer persona, trying new instruments and genres. Now the piano is back at the forefront, even though everything else in her life has changed. I like getting stuff done in the studio and then having a glass of wine and enjoying my night.
Though it has been compared to her debut, she plainly says she sees it as a continued evolution, not a throwback. Written and recorded in fall , most sessions had Jones on piano with drummer Brian Blade and bassist Chris Thomas. That strips the soul out of the music. Things that were valid years ago still resonate.
