Once Upon a Time
Before their albums drop next week, Green Day and Bruno Mars are streaming ¡Tre! and Unorthodox Jukebox in full. Take a listen!
All 12 songs from ¡Tre!, the third and final installment in Green Day’s album trilogy ¡Uno!¡Dos!¡Tre!, are available for your listening pleasure on demand over at iHeartRadio.
Twi-hards will know all about “The Forgotten,” as the piano ballad was featured in Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Fans of The Campaign – the Will Ferrell comedy released this summer – will recognize “99 Revolutions.” We’re partial to “Drama Queen,” “Amanda” and “8th Avenue Serenade.”
The first two installments in the trilogy, ¡Uno! and ¡Dos!, showed different sides of the band.
“One is just classic Green Day sound,” frontman Billie Joe Armstrong told iHeartRadio about the trilogy. “The second record, ¡Dos!, is more of a sort of a garage-rock kind of party record. And then the third record is more reflective on this epic scale…it’s kind of like the Twilight series…but good.”
Bruno Mars’ sophomore album is also streaming from a virtual jukebox (clever, eh?) on the 27-year-old crooner’s website.
Mars has already impressed with his four singles – “Locked Out of Heaven,” in which he channels the Police, “Moonshine” and ballads “Young Girls” and “When I Was Your Man.” But from the remaining six tracks, “Gorilla” and “If I Knew” shine.
He has previously stated that his sound doesn’t fit under one genre and proves it with his latest album made up of everything from island sounds to rock and roll.
Both ¡Tre! and Unorthodox Jukebox drop Dec. 11. Find out what other albums are being released this month in Hypable’s December 2012 Album Preview.
