I’ve had a significant other on Valentine’s Day a few times and the pressure to have an amazing time with amazing gifts makes me dread it. I wasn’t very bitter today and kind of neutral about it altogether. But seriously, who knew that the best Valentine’s Day gift ever would come from over the internet for exactly $0? I yelped a little when I saw the tweet.
Yes, that’s right. Green Day began recording a new album today, as per Billie Joe’s tweet. Of course, we went hear anything for quite some time but it’s nice to at least know there’s something new on the horizon and a new tour will be kicked off as well after the album’s release. I think this might rate as the Best Valentine’s Day Ever. And to think that as Tanya, Sally, Anne, and I were brunching last Saturday, we actually began to doubt that this would be the year the guys would record something new. We’ve decided to take some credit for the news today (facetiously).
Hopefully “Make Out Party" will make the cut onto the new album, and hopefully they’ll call the album "Fuck Time." (Probably not though, due to the fact that that is the title of a Foxboro Hot Tubs song.)
Hope everyone had a very red (and Green) Valentine’s Day.
