Listen: Green Day release inspiring new surprise track ‘Pollyanna’

Their rescheduled Hella Mega Tour doesn't have a Canadian stop

Green Day have announced their rescheduled Hella Mega Tour with Fall Out Boy and Weezer, and as part of the announcement, they’ve dropped a surprise track called “Pollyanna.”

The inspirational new song comes packed with driven riffs and uplifting lyrics, as frontman Billie Joe Armstrong sings lines like, “Don’t let ’em get you down/ Don’t let ’em push you ’round/ We’re gonna take back the night/ Everything’s gonna be alright.”

“Better days are looking up the road, and to celebrate we just dropped a brand new song,” the band wrote on social media.

Listen to “Pollyanna” below.
 

 
In addition to the track, they’ve announced their rescheduled Hella Mega Tour, which was postponed because of COVID-19. While the original tour was set to stop in Toronto, the new one only features U.S. stops.
