Last week Green Day announced their new album Saviors, which is out 19 January via Reprise and Warner. Recorded in London and Los Angeles, Saviors is the latest collaboration between Green Day and Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, whose notable previous work with Green Day includes two of the band’s most beloved albums, 1994’s Dookie and 2004’s American Idiot.
First single, The American Dream Is Killing Me was one of the last tracks written and recorded for Saviors. “As soon we cut it, we said, Okay, that’s going first,’” says singer Billie Joe Armstrong, who describes the new song as “a look at the way the traditional American Dream doesn’t work for a lot of people – in fact, it’s hurting a lot of people.”
The release of Saviors comes just ahead of the 30th anniversary of Dookie and celebrations have already begun with the release of a massive deluxe edition of the album which includes previously unreleased Dookie demos – 4-Track Demos and Cassette Demos – and Outtakes as well as two seminal live recordings, Live At Woodstock (1994) and the previously unreleased Live In Barcelona (June 5 ’94).
