Billie Joe Armstrong Shares ‘Manic Monday’ Cover Featuring Susanna Hoffs
He also said in a new interview that he wrote six new Green Day songs
As part of his ongoing No Fun Mondays series, Green Day singer Billie Joe Armstrong shared a cover of The Bangles’ “Manic Mondays.” This version of the song features none other than The Bangles’ Susanna Hoffs playing in a split-screen.
If you don’t remember, the 1986 hit song was actually co-written by Prince.
Also, Armstrong told Kerrang that while in quarantine, he has written six new Green Day songs.
“I’ve been writing a lot of music, and I had all these melodies in my head, so I wrote, like, six songs since all of this has been going on,” he said. “I don’t know when I can get together with Mike and Tré,” he continued, “but I told them to make sure that they’re quarantined for now, and then I hope down the road we can get back in the studio with [producer] Butch Walker.”
