Punk rock veterans Green Day have dropped off their newest record, Father of All Motherfuckers. Their 13th studio album overall, the 10-track project marks their shortest LP yet, clocking in at a short 26 minutes and dethroning 39/Smooth’s 31-minute length.
Experimenting on a new sound, the revered band drew inspiration from soul, Motown and glam rock to offer their take on rebellious and unforgivingly honest lyricism — a songwriting formula that has done them good over the years. The sonic elements, however, create a completely new space for the 34-year-old band to explore and refresh their own palates. They’ve made it very clear that they’re not here to offer a modern version of American Idiot or 21st Century Breakdown, let alone create a commentary on the political condition of the US, but instead release a narrative of their surroundings and the internal dialogue that gets lost in today’s tense environment.
