Discussing the potential for releasing new material following 2020 album Father Of All…, frontman Billie Joe Armstrong said in November last year, It’s a matter of whenever the right moment happens. That’s the beauty of the way you can put music out these days. You don’t have to wait for any gatekeeper to tell you that the timing is right.”

And check out the lyrics to have a nice little sing-along:

Rainy days and razor blades
I think it’s time to pull up the shades
It’s wonderful to be alive
Hurricanes and headlines
Standing in another line
It’s wonderful to be alive
Everything is gonna be alright
Don’t let em get you down
Don’t let em push you around
We’re gonna take back the night
Everything’s gonna be alright
Share your bread with friends you don’t know
Hold the truth and never let go
Don’t give up and go with what you know’s for real
Que sera and C’est la vie
Everyday’s a jubilee
It’s wonderful to be alive
Open roads and traffic lights
You’re the last soul in sight
It’s wonderful to be alive
Everything is gonna be alright
Don’t let em get you down
Don’t let em push you around
We’re gonna take back the night
Everything’s gonna be alright
Share your bread with friends you don’t know
Hold the truth and never let go
Don’t give up and go with what you know’s for real
Better days are looking up the road
Don’t give up and go with what you know
Hold the truth and leave the rest as not for real
Screaming out for love
Rise above the shame
Shouting out for love
Rise above
Don’t give up yourself
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down
Don’t let me down

Lovely stuff.
