Green Day is really gearing up for their most ambitious project yet. As we reported last month they have already been releasing Teasers. Their trilogy of albums so named: Uno! Dos! & Tre! are set to be released between September and January. When asked what their motivation was they related their a-ha moment:
“The songs just kept coming, kept coming. I’d go, ‘Maybe a double album? No, that’s too much nowadays.’ Then more songs kept coming. And one day, I sprung it on the others: ‘Instead of Van Halen I, II and III, what if it’s Green Day I, II and III and we all have our faces on each cover?’”
They are not stopping with music though, they are also releasing two documentaries to go along with them. When asked what these docs were about Billy said:
“It’s not going to be the sitting down, head shot of me going, ‘We started out blah blah blah’,” Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told Billboard. “We wanted to get into lifestyles of rock & roll and playing rock & roll and letting the story kind of tell itself rather than create revisionist [history].”
Uno! is set to be released on September 25th of this year, but if that is not soon enough for you the first single “Oh Love” will be available on July 16th.
