Green Day has released, "Oh Love," the first official single off its upcoming power-pop album ¡Uno!. It seems like those hoping for another politically charged record like 2004's American Idiot and 2009's 21st Century Breakdown are out of luck.

"We were just thinking about making a killer power-pop record -- dirtier, back to basics," bassist Mike Dirnt told Rolling Stone. "We tapped into our version of Exile on Main Street."

"Far away, far away, waste away tonight, I'm wearing my heart on a noose, far away, far away, waste away tonight, tonight my heart's on the loose," Billie Joe Armstrong gently croons on the track.

The band's trilogy of albums, titled ¡Uno!, ¡Dos! and ¡Tré!, will be released over this fall and winter, beginning with the release of ¡Uno! on Sept. 25. The ¡Uno! cover boasts frontman Billie Joe Armstrong's face, while ¡Dos! features bassist Dirnt and ¡Tré! highlights drummer Tre Cool.

Each of the three albums has a totally different vibe. "The first one is power pop," Armstrong recently told Rolling Stone. "The second is more garage-y, Nuggets-type rock. And the third is supposed to be epic. With the first album you're getting in the mood to party. On the second one, you're at the party. And the third album you're cleaning up the mess."

We're assuming this epic party is going to get X-rated. Last month the trio dropped a 30-second trailer for the "Nuggets-type" album (¡Dos!), in which the band teases plenty of "songs about sex." In March, Armstrong promised that the record would be "the first time we've ever really sung about f---ing."

Armstrong also recently told Rolling Stone in June that the band wanted something "punchier."

"People ask me all the time. Even my son asked me, 'Dad, would you ever go back to playing songs like from [1994's] Dookie and [1992's] Kerplunk?' I love those records. I love the punk stuff I grew up on. But there are so many bands who make the mistake -- 'We're going back, old-school.' Well, that's all you're doing. You already did it," said Armstrong.

"So we're changing the guitar sound," he added. "We're not going with the big Marshall-amp thing. We wanted something punchier, more power pop -- somewhere between AC/DC and the early Beatles."

In addition to three new albums, MTV reports that Green Day has two documentaries on the way. One is being made by Tim Lynch and Tim Wheeler. The other is a look back at the band's early days using vintage footage from before "Dookie."

The first of Green Day's music trilogy drops on Sept. 25, the second on Nov. 13 and the third on Jan. 15. Watch the official lyric video for "Oh Love" above.
