Green Day have announced plans to release an ambitious trilogy of albums entitled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos!, and ¡Tré!. The first disc will hit shelves on September 25th, the second on November 13th and the third on January 15th 2013.

"We are at the most prolific and creative time in our lives," Green Day said in a statement.  "This is the best music we've ever written, and the songs just keep coming," said the members of Green Day. "Instead of making one album, we are making a three album trilogy.  Every song has the power and energy that represents Green Day on all emotional levels.  We just can't help ourselves... We are going epic as fuck!"

The group is currently recording the music in Oakland with producer Rob Cavallo. They have played a series of clubs gigs in California and New York over the last year where they have previewed many new songs, though it's unknown if any of that material will be on the new discs. 

Green Day's last LP was 21st Century Breakdown in 2009. They toured extensively to support the disc, and this August and September they have dates booked in Asia and Europe.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
