Hits Daily Double posted an interview that they did with Green Day's long time producer Rob Cavallo about the band's upcoming trilogy. Rob has been with the band ever since Green Day signed to Warner in 1993 and has been in the producers chair for every album, excluding 21st Century Breakdown.
"The first five slamming tracks on ¡Uno!--the stomping "Nuclear Family," the yearning "Stay the Night," the fierce yet philosophical "Carpe Diem," the blistering call to arms "Let Yourself Go" and the funky-furious "Kill the DJ"--pack a musical wallop while probing emotionally complex territory. They're five perfectly written, diverse examples of where Green Day is right now. Every time I hear those five songs I just wanna hear them again."
Cavallo describes each album in the interview and describes ¡Dos! a "heady, hormonal fare" and ¡Tre! as "the most ambitious of the three albums." Another interesting point that Cavallo made in the article is when he said Jason White is "practically the fourth member."
Some little interesting notes:
- We learn a little more about the "rap" song "Nightlife." It's "dubby" and "chubby" and features a rap from Lady Cobra of Mystic Knights of the Cobra. This will be interesting.
- The final track of the whole trilogy is titled "The Forgotten" and is very Beatles-esque according to the article. Billie's final line in the song is "Don't look away from the arms of love."
