Summer is nearly gone, writes Pitchfork, and Green Day have announced a new album. Father Of All...(full name: Father Of All Mother Fuckers) arrives February 7, 2020 via Reprise/Warner. Father of All... is Green Day's 13th album and first since they released Revolution Radio in 2016.
Many of the lyrics were based on playful titles that frontman Billie Joe Armstrong jotted down in the notes on his phone.
"Song titles were really big on this one," Billie Joe explains. "We have one song called "The Art Of The Deal With The Devil" — Trump wrote a book called The Art Of The Deal, back in the '80s or something. It was just these titles that make you laugh. That kind of stuff would lead into lyrics. It's like a puzzle, just trying to put it together."
As for why the album is called Father Of All Mother Fuckers?
"Um..." the frontman ponders with a grin. "It's just a badass title! I think it was Kerry King from Slayer — they have an album called God Hates Us All, and someone asked, ‘Do you really think God hates us all?' And he goes, ‘I don't know! It's just a badass title!' (Laughs) As soon as the title came up, I was like, ‘Oh man, this is good.'"
