Billie Joe Armstrong on New Green Day Album: ‘I’ve Got Four or Five Songs Right Now’
Last year, Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong teased fans with some big plans for the band in 2015. Now, as if the year hasn't already yielded enough to celebrate for the punk rock trio -- you know, that whole Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction thing -- the frontman has shared some details for Green Day's next LP.
"I've got, like, four or five songs right now," Armstrong told Rolling Stone. "I'm gonna take it really slow. I'm just gonna make sure every moment is inspired and that we have something that's really special to us. And right now with the songs that we have, it's going in the right direction."
Though, when asked if he thought there would be a new album next year, he answered succinctly, "I can't say."
Armstrong also discussed his experience being inducted into the Rock Hall: "I was freaking out. I was beyond nervous. I was just f---in' ... I don't even know how to put it."
And when asked if he feels like an "elder statesmen" now that he's in the Hall of Fame, he admits he doesn't like thinking about "feeling like royalty," because, as he puts it, "I'm the jester, you know?"
