No Fun Mondays continue

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.
