Green Day have announced a new live album, compiling four of their Maida Vale sessions from across their career. The BBC Sessions features rare recordings of sessions for the BBC from 1994, 1996, 1998 and 2001. The 16-track record will come out on 10 December.

The earliest session documented on the new record came on June 8, 1994, just months after the band released their iconic album Dookie, going on to play a number of its highlights including When I Come Around and Basket Case.

The 1996 session saw them supporting Insomniac, before they returned to Maida Vale again in 1998 (on the ‘Nimrod’ tour) and 2001, for Warning.

The BBC Sessions will be available in multiple physical formats, including CD and limited edition 2LP vinyl versions, including a Sea Blue/Hot Pink edition exclusive to the band’s online webstore, and a Milky Clear version to be sold at indie record shops.

Ahead of the release of the album, the band have promised to share a new track per week. First up, listen to 2000 Light Years Away from 1994, which you can listen to below.
