Green Day have strongly suggested that they have written a new tribute song for Amy Winehouse, which is simply titled 'Amy'. You can hear a live version of the track by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

The pop-punk trio debuted the track at an intimate show at the Tiki Bar 1700 Placentia in Costa Mesa, California last week, in which they played a total of 15 new songs for the first time.

The band have posted a message on their official website Greenday.com in which they thanked fans for coming to the show, which they played in order to raise money for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

They also posted the lyrics to new song 'Amy', and, while they didn't explicitly say that the song has been written about the late singer, given some of the lyrics include lines that read "Dirty records from another time", "27 gone without a trace" and "Did you tattoo a lucky charm", this would strongly suggest that the track has been written in Winehouse's honour.

The band also posted an update on their progress in writing a new studio album. They wrote:

We have been in jamming and writing new songs for the last few months. It felt great to play these new Green Day songs live and share our "work in progress". Stay tuned for more!
