Listen to Bastille's cover of Green Day's Basket Case from The Tick.

Bastille have recorded a cover of Green Day's classic anthem, Basket Case.

The track has been released to promote Amazon Prime's new tongue-in-cheek Superhero series, The Tick.

The Tick, will be available to stream on Amazon Prime from next Friday (August 25).

The band’s frontman Dan said “We’re massive Green Day fans and so  tried to make a version of ‘Basket Case’ that was totally different to the original whilst still honouring what an awesome tune it is.”

“We had a lot of fun reinterpreting it with loads of strings and brass, inspired by countless film scores and ‘Eleanor Rigby’. To be able to work on something that combines superheroes, orchestras and Green Day was an absolute pleasure.”

Bastille play Reading & Leeds festivals this Bank Holiday weekend.
