Green Day Release New Single 'Oh Love'


Green Day


Green Day have released the first single from 'Uno!', which is the the first installment of an album trilogy.

Rock trio Green Day are back with a new single titled "Oh Love", and released it on Monday, July 16. The light power pop track is the first single off their upcoming album, "Uno!".

Vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong sings, "Far away/ far away/ waste away tonight/ tonight my heart's on the loose," on track with a heavy guitar emphasis. "We were just thinking about making a killer power-pop record -- dirtier, back to basics," bassist Mike Dirnt said about the new record when they spoke to Rolling Stone.

Armstrong, meanwhile, talked about the "punchier" sound that they are after in the album. He stated, "I love the punk stuff I grew up on. But there are so many bands who make the mistake, 'We're going back, old-school.' Well, that's all you're doing. You already did it."

The lead singer went on to explain how they did it, "So we're changing the guitar sound," and adds, "We wanted something punchier, more power pop -- somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles."

"Uno!" is the first of a trilogy and will have a power pop sound. Its cover will feature the face of Armstrong. Its follow-up "Dos!" will have Dirnt on the cover and is expected to sound "more garage-y, Nuggets-type rock." The third in the set will be called "Tre!" and will have the face of drummer Tre Cool on the cover. The third album's sound has been described as "epic" by Armstrong.

"Oh Love" can be purchased on iTunes. "Uno!" drops on September 25 in U.S. "Dos!" follows on November 13, and "Tre!" comes out on January 15. All albums can be pre-ordered on the band's website starting July 23.
