Green Day unleash the brand new single, "Dilemma"

07 December 2023, 14:00 | Written by Tyler Damara Kelly

Global rock superstars Green Day – Billie Joe Armstrong, Mike Dirnt and Tré Cool – have shared their latest single, “Dilemma", which is featured on their fourteenth studio album Saviors.

The accompanying black-and-white music video finds Billie Joe Armstrong passed out on the ground as he slurs out the brutally honest lyrics, “I was sober now I’m drunk again / I’m in trouble and in love again / I don’t want to be a dead man walking / I don’t want to be a dead man walking.” The visual follows the band through a classic night of performing hard and partying even harder. As the track winds down, memories start to gain some colour as Armstrong gets hit with the cold hard sober truth: drunk Armstrong made a mess of everything.

“"Dilemma" was one of those songs that was kind of easy to write because it was so personal to me,” Billie Joe Armstrong explains. “We’ve seen so many of our peers struggle with addiction and mental illness. This song is all about the pain that comes from those experiences.”

The track features on their forthcoming album, along with their previously released singles “The American Dream Is Killing Me” and “Look Ma, No Brains!”.

Green Day recently announced a 2024 global stadium tour with support from the The Smashing Pumpkins, Rancid, and The Linda Lindas in North America and Nothing But Thieves, The Hives, Donots, The Interrupters and Maid of Ace in the UK/EU.

Recorded in London and Los Angeles, Saviors is the latest powerful collaboration between Green Day and Grammy-winning producer Rob Cavallo, whose notable previous work with Green Day includes two of the band’s most iconic albums, 1994’s Dookie and 2004’s American Idiot.

"Dilemma" is out now. Saviors is set for release on 19 January 2024 via Reprise/Warner Records, and is available to pre-order. For more information on their forthcoming tour dates, visit
