Billie Joe Armstrong's been keeping himself busy during quarantine by launching a cover series called "No Fun Mondays." The Green Day frontman unveiled his first cover, a timely rendition of Tommy James & The Shondells' 1967 hit "I Think I'm Alone Now," in March. "I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation at least we can be alone together," he said at the time.

That was followed by a cover of Johnny Thunders' 1978 track "You Can't Put Your Arms Around A Memory," a rendition of The Bangles' "Manic Monday," where he was joined by the band's singer/guitarist Susanna Hoffs, and a tribute to Adam Schlesinger with a cover of "That Thing You Do!" He also celebrated his bandmate Mike Dirnt's birthday with a cover of "We're The Kids In America" and put his spin on John Lennon's"Gimme Some Truth."

Now, Armstrong's putting out an album that includes all 14 songs. No Fun Mondays is slated for a November 27 release and will be available digitally and physically on baby blue vinyl with a glow in the dark cover. Pre-order the album here and see the full tracklist below.
