Green Day said they had planned to take a 'break' following their Australian tour dates, which took place in February and March of this year. Speaking to Jo Whiley on BBC Radio 2, Billie Joe Armstrong said: "...we're going to take a break. We haven't really been doing much. So it's just nice to kind of do some other things, y'know, when we get ready to do Green Day again, our batteries will be charged."

Armstrong and Norah Jones released an Everly Brothers tribute album, 'Foreverly', in November 2013. The track-by track homage to the Everly Brothers' own 1958 LP, 'Songs Our Daddy Taught Us', was recorded in nine days at Manhattan's Magic Shop.
