Green Day have released their new single ‘Bang Bang’ and detailed their upcoming album.

“There’s definitely a great spirit going on,” he said. “We’ve always been pretty charged up. Before we found any of this out, I had already written a few songs and everybody was really excited by them. And then we heard about [being inducted into the Rock And Roll] Hall Of Fame, and we were just blown away. Yeah, I mean, we’re going to take our time.”

He added: “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 honoured or anything like that, but because we’re honouring music. We want to work on them, and we want to make a great album.”
