Green Day‘s new song “The American Dream Is Killing Me” is here.

The track, which the “American Idiot” trio had been teasing for the past month and debuted live during a recent Las Vegas show, is the lead single off the upcoming album Saviors, due out January 19.

In a statement, Billie Joe Armstrong describes “The American Dream Is Killing Me” 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.”

You can listen to “The American Dream Is Killing Me” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying, zombie-themed video streaming now on YouTube.

Saviors is the 14th Green Day album and the follow-up to 2020’s Father of All… It also includes the song “Look Ma, No Brains!” — which Green Day played during When We Were Young. The rest of the 15-song track list has yet to be revealed.

Green Day is planning to tour the U.S. in 2024 alongside The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid and The Linda Lindas. Full details for the tour are forthcoming.
