Do you have the time? Bastille premieres string-heavy cover of Green Day's "Basket Case"

ABC/Randy HolmesDo you have the listen to Bastille's "Basket Case" cover? The British band has released their own version of the Green Day classic, which you can download digitally now.

For their cover, Bastille stripped out the pop-punk guitars for bouncy string and horn sections. It's an eerily happy sound for a song about Billie Joe Armstrong's struggle with anxiety.

Bastille recorded "Basket Case" for the upcoming Amazon superhero series The Tick, which premieres August 25.

In September, Bastille will embark on a North American tour in support of their sophomore album, Wild World.
