This isn’t the first time Billie Joe and Jesse have teamed up. Back in 2010, Jesse Malin and Green Day united to form the band Rodeo Queens. They released only one song that December called “Depression Times,” which you can hear below:
Green Day’s last studio album was 2016’s Revolution Radio. That record included the singles “Bang Bang,” “Still Breathing,” and the title track. More recently, Green Day released their second greatest hits compilation, God’s Favorite Band, late in 2017. Last spring, Billie Joe also released the album Love Is For Losers with his new side band, The Longshot.
In December 2018, Billie Joe Armstrong revealed that he is “writing new songs” for Green Day. Although he didn’t reveal any other information, the band will likely begin recording in the coming months. With any luck, we could get a new album late this year; otherwise, 2020 sounds promising.
Get ready to hear “Strangers & Thieves” next month! Be sure to pre-save the song here. As always, keep checking back here for all the latest Green Day music news.
