Yes, Know Your Enemy

greenday21stcenturybreakdown.jpgSome big releases today in music! First and foremost, Green Day has released their first single “Know Your Enemy” from their forthcoming album 21st Century Breakdown, which will release May 15th from Reprise Records. iTunes is offering an exclusive pre-sale on the album for $11.99, which will also get you “Know Your Enemy” as an immediate download. The new track is awesome and features an instrumentation which sounds like 21st Century Breakdown will pick-up right where the group’s last (2004) album American Idiot left off. Also today, Astralwerks released Pet Shop Boys’ new album Yes, featuring the smash hit “Love, Etc.” I opted to purchase 9 of the 11 songs from the album (I wasn’t a fan of “King of Rome” or “The Way It Used to Be”) and the songs are great! They are heavily-laden with pop-synth and are upbeat and fun. While the Pet Shop Boys are┬áno Erasure, this album should hold us over until the dynamic duo releases their new album in 2010. Below, the Pet Shop Boys discuss the making of their new album
