Green Day has announced an upcoming archival live album titled BBC Sessions is set to arrive on December 10. Pre-order, here. 

The 16-track LP compiles rare recordings from the punk rock legends’ sessions for the BBC between 1994 and 2001. The earliest session, June 8, 1994, documents Green Day peaking in the months following the arrival of their break out album, Dookie and features some of their biggest hits like When I Come Around and Basket Case.

The band will be sharing one song per week from the BBC Sessions tracklisting in the lead-up to its release. Listen to the first one, 2000 Light Years Away, below.

Between 1994 and 2001, Green Day would visit the BBC’s Maida Vale Studios in London four times. As well as Dookie, subsequent sessions saw the band support their follow-up releases, Insomniac in 1996, Nimrod in 1998 and Warning in 2001. This compilation documents those sessions, and, newly remastered, is the first time these recordings have been made available to fans. 

BBC Sessions will be available in CD, digital and limited-edition 2-LP vinyl, including a coloured pink and blue vinyl version exclusive to the band’s online store and limited to 10,000 copies worldwide. Check out the tracklisting and pre-order BBC Sessions, here.
