Hør hele Foreverly - hyllesten til de amerikanske legendene fra en noe uventet dynamittduo.
Norah Jones og sanger i Green Day, Billie Joe Armstrong, er muligens ikke de mest åpenlyse fans av amerikansk country 'n' roll. Men de to har nå gått sammen for et album som hyller Everly Brothers' LP Songs Our Daddy Taught Us fra 1958. Tributealbumet har fått tittelen Foreverly, og kan nå streames eksklusivt via GAFFA.COM.
Billie Joe beskriver prosjektet og samarbeidet med Norah sådan, i formuleringer som tar seg best ut på originalspråket:
"I've been a big fan of The Everly Brothers since I was a little boy," Armstrong says. "A couple of years ago, I discovered Songs Our Daddy Taught Us for the first time, and I fell in love with it. I was playing it every day and thought it would be a cool idea to re-do the record, but with a female singer. I thought of Norah because she can sing anything, from rock to jazz to blues, and I knew her harmonies would be amazing. I thought the songs would take on a different meaning working with her, and she has a really good ear for arrangements. I was mainly intrigued by these old traditionals, country songs, and hymns. When we were done with the album, Norah looked at me and said, 'I bet you didn't think you were going to make a country record, huh?'"
