green day [feat. the broadway cast of american idiot] > 21 guns
welch grosses potenzial die songs von green day für ihr broadway-musical american idiot haben, lässt sich bei dieser aufnahme von 21 guns unschwer erkennen.
21 guns, originally featured on the band’s gold album 21st century breakdown, has been newly arranged by tom kitt, who is credited with the show’s arrangements and musical supervision. the new version was recorded at green day’s studio in oakland, ca and produced by armstrong.
prominently featured on the track are american idiot cast members john gallagher, jr., who won a tony award in 2007 for spring awakening, matt kaplan, michael esper, rebecca naomi jones (passing strange), christina sajous, and mary faber. though the bulk of the songs in the musical are taken from american idiot, four songs from 21st century breakdown, including 21 guns, are featured in the show.
