Green Day guitarist and frontman Bille Joe Armstrong says they have 45 songs ready for their next album and are busy
in the studio.
Billie Joe says he is still trying to find inspiration for the new long player, but that the current music scene isn't providing much.
Speaking to Rolling Stone he said: "We have a lot of music - something like 45 songs. It's total chaos, I want to dig into who I am and what I'm feeling at this moment - which is middle aged. We've been doing this for 20 years now. You want to make sure you're being honest with yourself. I also have to ask myself 'what's real out there?' Right now, it seems stagnant".
The album is the follow up to 2004's multi-million selling American Idiot.
