Following the release of 2000 Light Years Away last week, today (October 29) Green Day have shared the next song from their upcoming The BBC Sessions album: a 1994 performance of Basket Case.

The full, 16-song record is due out on December 10, and will consist of various sessions the band played at London's Maida Vale Studios between 1994 and 2001 for the BBC – all mixed and made available for the first time ever!

As well as this Dookie era recording, The BBC Sessions will also feature live recordings of songs from Insomniac (Geek Stink Breath, Brain Stew/Jaded, Walking Contradiction and Stuck With Me), Nimrod (Hitchin’ A Ride, Nice Guys Finish Last, Prosthetic Head and Redundant) and Warning (Castaway, Church On Sunday, Minority and Waiting).
