Last month, at Quebec City’s Plaines d’Abraham, Green Day performed a new song called 1981 live for the first time ever. Previously they’d been teasing something to do with the year 1972, and we have no idea if the two are linked, but let’s hope there’s even more new stuff on the way.
In late 2022, they confirmed that they had been working on a new album, posting: “WTF WHAT a year. Seeing you all at festivals, in between working recording our record in London & LA, doing a Hella Mega European tour playing the US East Coast, Chicago and Florida, San Francisco, shows in Brazil and Argentina. Playing Singapore to Austin Texas to Los Angeles charity show with Billy Idol, Jon Fogerty and The Who.”
