Reprise Records' Green Day announced today that they are working with Nokia and AT&T to launch Nokia Music, a new music streaming service offering consumers free and unlimited access to playlists and songs from a global catalogue boasting 17 million tracks.
To celebrate the launch of Nokia Music, the multi-platinum selling and Grammy Award-winning band have created a series of exclusive playlists and will shortly announce a very special kick-off concert.

Nokia Music is a mobile experience exclusive to Nokia Lumia handsets currently available at all AT&T stores. AT&T is the nation's largest 4G network. Consumers can stream unlimited music from a suite of over 150 exclusive playlists that are curated and kept up to date by an expert team of US based musicologists. The playlists span a wide spectrum of musical genres from underground Detroit house tracks to New York Philharmonic favorites.
Nokia Music also offers playlists created by global artists such as Green Day, who are an active part of the service curating their namesake playlists. Moreover, music fans can create their own personal soundtrack by selecting the Nokia Music 'Create function that generates a playlist based on, and inspired by, the artists they love.
Fans will also be able to access three special playlists, curated by Green Day exclusively for Nokia Music and AT&T. "We are excited to team up with Nokia Music and AT&T and for our fans to hear ¡UNO! for the first time on our Facebook page," said the members of Green Day.
Jyrki Rosenberg VP of Entertainment at Nokia said: "We are absolutely delighted to be working with Green Day to launch Nokia Music.
"The USA is the most vibrant and competitive digital music market in the world - by a wide margin. We have worked extra hard to ensure our service meets the expectations of the demanding, active and inspired music fans in the US. I would like to challenge everyone to try Nokia Music and see just how easy and enjoyable the service is to use."
Green Day is currently preparing for the release of their trilogy of new albums - Green Day ¡Uno!, Green Day ¡Dos!, and Green Day ¡Tré! - on September 25th, 2012; November 13th, 2012, and January 15th, 2013, respectively.
