Like many of us, the members of Green Day have been self-quarantining to help slow the spread of the coronavirus. On Monday (March 23), Billie Joe Armstrong shared how he's been spending his time at home: recording music.

The band's frontman wrote a message to fans on Instagram and unveiled a timely cover of Tommy James & The Shondells' 1967 hit "I Think I'm Alone Now."

"Dear friends.. While we’ve all been in quarantine I’ve been reflecting on the things that matter the most in my life. Family, friends and of course music," he wrote. "I recorded a cover of @tommyjamesandtheshondells 'I think we’re alone now' in my bedroom. I figure if we have to spend this time in isolation at least we can be alone together."

See his message and listen to the cover below.

Earlier this month, Green Day were forced to postpone their Asian tour in support of their new album 'Father of All...' while the coronavirus wreaked havoc on the region; however, they're still planning to head out on the Hella Mega tour to New Zealand with Weezer and Fall Out Boy later this year.
