Miranda Lambert fans will be treated to a fun collaboration this November 17 when Green Day releases their latest album, a compilation of the groups greatest hits aptly named Greatest Hits: God's Favorite Band. The 22-track project will feature hits like “American Idiot," “21 Guns" and “Boulevard of Broken Dreams," with a special feature on “Ordinary World." Miranda Lambert will be joining the band and performing lead vocals in a duet with Billie Joe Armstrong on the 21st track.
While this may immediately appear to be an unlikely pairing, this isn't the first collaboration between Lambert and Green Day front man and co-founder Armstrong. At the 2014 Grammy awards, the two teamed up to perform The Everly Brothers' “When Will I Be Loved" live in honor of the recently passed, Phil Everly.
