Green Day streams The American Dream Is Killing Me from new album Saviors

Green Day is streaming “The American Dream Is Killing Me” as the lead single from the newly-announced forthcoming album, “Saviors.”

As featured in a film noir-inspired video directed by Brendan Walter and Ryan Baxley, the tune was one of the last tracks written and recorded for the project.

“As soon we cut it, we said, `Okay, that’s going first,’” says Billie Joe Armstrong who describes the new song as “a look at the way the traditional American Dream doesn’t work for a lot of people -- in fact, it’s hurting a lot of people.”

Green Day debuted “The American Dream Is Killing Me” and “Look Ma, No Brains!” off the new album live last weekend during their Las Vegas, NV, takeover, consisting of a sold-out surprise show at the 800 capacity Fremont and back-to-back headlining performances at When We Were Young Festival.

Due January 19, 2024 via Reprise/Warner Records, “Saviors” was recorded in London and Los Angeles with longtime producer Rob Cavallo.

Green Day will perform this Thursday, October 26 as part of Amazon Music Live’s concert series.

Last month, the California group released an expanded Super Deluxe 30th anniversary edition of their 1994 smash, “Dookie.”
