If you're a Green Day fan, make sure you're watching MTV next Wednesday night at 7:49 p.m. ET. That's when the band will premiere the video for their new single, "Oh Love." That'll be followed by a 30-minute interview over on MTV.com, where frontman Billie Joe Armstrong and the guys will answer fans' questions and talk about their upcoming album trilogy, ¡Uno! ¡Dos! and ¡Tre!
The video for "Oh Love" was directed by Samuel Bayer, who was also behind the camera for their award-winning clip "Boulevard of Broken Dreams."
Billie Joe tells MTV that "Oh Love" and its video are a real departure from some of Green Day's more politically-charged tunes. "'Oh Love' is kind of like leading with your heart and not necessarily with your brain as much," he explains. "And [also] kind of maybe losing your mind, and shooting a little bit more from the crotch area."
