Collaborations in music happen all the time. Sometimes they come out of left field (like Lou Reed and Metallica) but still somehow it still makes sense from the start. And sometimes, collaborations happen and I just wouldn’t even have thought of it, but the end result is something amazing.
So when this collaboration between Norah Jones and Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day) appeared, and it was covers of Everly Brothers songs, my true first thought was WTF? But then I heard it, and fell in love.
These two voices work well together, and the arrangements are tasteful, respectful, fun. I don’t know how these people met, or how this project happened, but I don’t care.
I really, really like this album a lot.
