After years of anticipation since their last album release, Revolution Radio, Green Day is releasing Father of All... in Feb. 2020. A graphic novel is also set to come out based on their single, “Last of the American Girls,” in October. Rolling Stone magazine held an interview with Green Day detailing their new upcoming album. Billie Joe Armstrong explained the direction they wanted to go with for this new album, stating, “I’d always loved British mod music from the sixties, but I wanted to go where the source was and see if I could put soul through the Green Day filter.” From this, it is assumed that the new album will have a heavy influence from soul music and early rock.
