“Are we, we are the waiting?” Indeed. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong talks about new songs being written for the highly awaited LP, hopefully set for a 2016 release date.
In an interview with RollingStone, lead guitarist and vocalist Billie Joe Armstrong shared details of the new Green Day album that is currently in development. “We’ve always been pretty charged up. Before we found any of this [Hall of Fame award] out, I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them.”
“We’re not going to try and pull off some, like, victory lap over this because I definitely want the music to come from a real place and be inspired, not just because we got honored or anything like that, but because we’re honoring music. We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.”
Armstrong also revealed that there is currently a handful of songs that has already been created for the new album, yet the release date isn’t so much of his concern as of the moment. In the same interview, the Green Day frontman shared, “I’ve got, like, four or five songs right now.”
“I’m gonna take it really slow,” he added. “I’m just gonna make sure every moment is inspired and that we have something that’s really special to us. And right now with the songs that we have, it’s going in the right direction.”
When was asked about the release date for the new album and if it will be out at least by next year, Armstrong simply replied “I can’t say.”
