The San Francisco Chronical conducted an interview with Tom Kitt who revealed that he is working with Green Day on their upcoming trilogy of albums, ¬°Uno! ¬°Dos! ¬°Tr√©!. Kitt says that the band liked his work on the American Idiot Musical and 21st Century Breakdown and would like him to continue to work with them.
"Green Day liked Kitt's work on "American Idiot" so much they invited him to work on some arrangements for "21st Century Breakdown," and there will be another collaboration on the band's upcoming album (or, as Kitt says, "three albums at once")."
As mentioned above, Kitt did the arrangements and orchestration for American Idiot: The Musical, which were killer, to say the least. Kitt also worked quite a bit on 21st Century Breakdown, most noticeable on tracks such as Last Night on Earth, Peacemaker, and Restless Heart Syndrome.
Kitt had this to say about working with the band again:
"My love of Green Day is on so many levels. It's their genius for songwriting, the fact that they write about very important subjects, both personal and political, and they're just a timeless band. I feel like I grew up with them. They were such a sound track to my life, and then when I actually started working on the music, I found so many layers and just got more and more inspired."
Personally, I'm excited to see what role Kitt plays in the new albums because I really like the work he's done with Green Day. From the songs we've heard so far, it'll be interesting to see how Kitt can incorporate his magic into the new tracks.
