The reigning king of covers in the time of COVID has done it again. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong has continued his No Fun Mondays covers series, with a rendition of Billy Bragg’s “A New England.”
“A New England” appeared on Bragg’s 1983 album Life’s a Riot with Spy vs Spy. British singer-songwriter Kristy MacColl released a version of the song, with two additional verses written by Bragg, which went on to become a hit in the UK.
