Earlier today MTV News posted the second installment of their interview with Green Day, the first part was posted earlier this week. The band is once again on the set of the "Oh Love" video where we get some nice teaser footage from the filming of the video.

Billie Joe again confirms that their trilogy wouldn't be a rock opera like their two previous releases and would be more "back to basics."

"The last two albums, American Idiot and 21st Century Breakdown, sort of bookend each other, and it's the end of that era. And I think with writing these three albums we just started writing songs, just getting back to basics, more stripped-down rock and roll. [And] we just started noticing the changes that were happening, so ¡Uno! is more of a power-pop record, ¡Dos! is more of a dirty, party, garage record, and ¡Tré! is sort of this epic ending of the whole thing... So it's kind of like going around the world in 37 songs with Green Day."




Hopefully there is still more videos to come from this interview. Head over to MTV.com to read some outtakes from the other band members that didn't make it into the MTV News segment.
