You may have already heard that Green Day is planning on releasing three consecutive studio albums soon titled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tres!. The first disc drops on September 25th, the second on November 13th and the third on January 15th. Supposedly, each of the three albums has a totally different vibe. According to Billie Joe Armstrong,
“The first one is power pop. The second is more garage-y, Nuggets-type rock. And the third is supposed to be epic. With the first album you’re getting in the mood to party. On the second one, you’re at the party. And the third album you’re cleaning up the mess.”
All three discs are produced by Green Day’s old producer Rob Cavallo who also co-produced their 1994 breakthrough disc, Dookie. According to Cavallo,
“We wanted to get back to the simplicity of Dookie. We also wanted to go pre-Dookie, back to our love of 50’s and 60’s music, close-to-the-bone Rock & Roll. You don’t hear a gazillion parts. The majority of this is drums, bass, two guitars and vocals.”
Bassist Mike Dirnt went on to say the following about the albums:
“We were just thinking about making a killer power-pop record – dirtier, back to basics. We tapped into our version of Exile on Main Street.”
Until the albums come out, enjoy the release of their videos. A hint when watching this one – put on some 3D glasses!
