Green Day has announced that "Oh Love" will be the lead single from their upcoming album trilogy ¡UNO! ¡DOS! ¡TRÉ!. The track is set for digital release on July 16th and will be the first taste of Green Day's enormous project.

"We're changing the guitar sound. We're not going with the big Marshall amp thing," frontman Billie Joe Armstrong recently told Rolling Stone about the trilogy. "We wanted something punchier, more power pop – somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles... If you listen to it, it feels grand. But it also feels like a garage band."

¡UNO! will be released September 25th, with ¡DOS! following on November 23rd and ¡TRÉ! on January 15th, 2013.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
