Jesse Malin’s new song “Strangers & Thieves” featuring Billie Joe Armstrong and Lucinda Williams is finally here! Check it out below and purchase it here.

During a Rolling Stone interview, Malin talks about working with Armstrong saying:

“’Strangers & Thieves’” started as a song I had for a fun side project with the guys in Green Day called Rodeo Queens. Lucinda heard the song and felt it really fit in with Sunset Kids. I had the music and lines for a chorus. One day, Billie Joe Armstrong was in town, and it was one of those nostalgic Sundays, where we walked around looking at all the old sites, like the A7 club, which is now Niagara, and CBGB’s, now the Varvatos store, and the old Rat Cage Records spot,” Malin tells Rolling Stone.

“A couple days later,” he continues, “Billie Joe sent me a text with the finished song. He kept a couple of the lines I had for the choruses, and wrote lyrics about the Bay Area scene through his eyes, a scene that was very parallel to my experiences in New York. Somehow, we all found each other, just being outcasts looking for real music and like-minded trouble.”

The track appears on Malin’s new album, Sunset Kids, out August 30th. Pre-order a copy here.
