New video: Green Day “Cigarettes & Valentines”

Green Day have offered out a “lyric” video for a track from their upcoming live album, “Awesome As F**k,” due March 22.

The 2-disc set, which includes a CD plus bonus DVD, features performances captured during the band’s 2009-2010 World Tour in support of their Grammy Award-winning album “21st Century Breakdown.“

Green Day recorded every show on the tour; when it concluded, the band sifted through the audio to deliver the best performances from their shows around the world.

Originally recorded in 2003, “Cigarettes & Valentines” was the title track from an unreleased album by the band. What should have been the follow-up to 2000’s “Warning,” was reportedly stolen from the studio and the master tapes were gone. Rather than re-record the project, Green Day started over from scratch, and went on to create the legendary “American Idiot” set in 2004.
