Green Day have started recording their new album.

Writing on his Twitter account yesterday, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong revealed that the pop punkers had official begun studio sessions on their new LP.

He wrote:

Happy Valentine's day! Officially started recording the new record today. It's Fuck Time!!!!


The band have previously said that their new ninth studio album will move away from the concepts of their last two records 'American Idiot' and '21st Century Breakdown' and be more straightforward.

In November last year, Green Day debuted their new track 'Carpe Diem' during a live show in San Francisco – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the song. The band's last release was a live album titled 'Awesome As Fuck' in 2011.

Last month (January 23), Green Day's American Idiot musical added an extra week of performances to its UK tour. The musical, which finished a lengthy run at St James Theater on Broadway earlier this year, will visit eight cities on a UK jaunt that begins in October 2012.

The show is based around songs from Green Day's last two studio albums 'American Idiot' and '21st Century Breakdown'. A feature film version of the musical, which is being produced by Tom Hanks, is currently in development.
