Billie Joe Armstrong & Norah Jones

Billie Joe Armstrong (born February 17, 1972) is an American musician, singer, songwriter and occasional actor. He is best known as the lead vocalist, principal songwriter, and guitarist of the punk rock band Green Day, which Armstrong co-founded with Mike Dirnt. He is also a guitarist and vocalist for the punk rock band Pinhead Gunpowder and provides lead vocals for Green Day's side projects Foxboro Hot Tubs and The Network.

Norah Jones (born Geetali Norah Jones Shankar; March 30, 1979) is an American singer-songwriter, pianist, and actress. She is the daughter of Indian sitar player Ravi Shankar and Sue Jones. She is also Anoushka Shankar's half-sister.

In one of the less likely collaborations in recent music history, Norah Jones and Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong have teamed up to record Foreverly, a track-for-track tribute to the Everly Brothers' 1958 album, Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, due for release November 25, 2013.

The album features reinterpreted versions of traditional songs like "Down in the Willow Garden" and the the often-covered "Barbara Allen" next to country classics like Karl Davis' "Kentucky." In a press release, Armstrong (a longtime Everly Brothers fan) says the project originated after he discovered Songs Our Daddy Taught Us a couple years go.
