27 November 2013 - Billie Joe + Norah - Silver-Haired Daddy Of Mine

I was totally intrigued when I first heard that Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong was doing an album with jazz/pop songstress Norah Jones (collectively known as Billie Joe + Norah). Then my mind was completely blown when I learned that the album (Foreverly) was a recreation of Songs Our Daddy Taught Us, the 1958 Everly Brothers collection of traditional American songs. Judging by the first single, That Silver-Haired Daddy Of Mine (originally written and performed by Gene Autry) I have to say that they sound awfully sweet together. I'll be picking this one up sooner than later.
