Green Day have announced the tracklisting for their forthcoming ‘¡Uno!’ album, the first LP in their ‘¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!’ album trilogy.
The album is the first part of the ‘¡Uno! ¡Dos! ¡Tré!’ series, which will be released in three stages.

Singer Billie Joe Armstrong recently called the band’s forthcoming trilogy of albums “a crazy idea that happens to be working really well.” Speaking to Rolling Stone, Armstrong also explained that the new albums will be ‘power pop’. He said of the band’s musical direction: “We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles.”
Green Day will play headline shows at Japan’s Summer Sonic festival and France’s Rock En Seine in August and a headline slot at I-Day festival in Bologna, Italy on September 2 as well as three shows in Germany in late August.
The tracklisting for ‘¡Uno!’ is as follows:
‘Stay The Night’
‘Let Yourself Go’
‘Kill The DJ’
‘Fell For You’
‘Loss Of Control’
