Oasis Be Here Now

The third release in the Oasis series CHASING THE SUN: 1993-1997, has landed.

Arguably the most anticipated British album release of all time, BE HERE NOW was recorded with producer Owen Morris at Abbey Road Studios, Ridge Farm Studios, and Air Studios between October 1996 and May 1997.

Originally released at midnight on Thursday August 21st 1997, BE HERE NOW sold 700,000 copies in just 3 days and remains to this day the fastest selling UK album on release. To date it has sold over 8 million copies worldwide. 

Re-mastered from the original tapes, BE HERE NOW Chasing The Sun Edition will be available as a Special Edition 3 x CD & Deluxe digital download and 12” vinyl LP with download code for the bonus content

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE BONUS CONTENT INCLUDE:

Unreleased Mustique Demos

Recorded in Mustique in early 1996 by Noel Gallagher and Owen Morris, these are the original demos for ‘BE HERE NOW. The tapes of the demos were mislaid shortly after the completion of recording, and remained effectively lost until recently unearthed in the depths of the label’s archive.  None of these original versions of the songs have ever been heard by anyone outside of the band before.

‘D’You Know What I Mean? (NG’s 2016 Rethink)’

‘D’You Know What I Mean?’ entered the UK chart at No.1 in July 1997 and is Oasis’ third biggest selling single. Noel Gallagher has re-worked the track for this new edition of the album. The artwork for the single has also been re-imagined by sleeve designer Brian Cannon, using an outtake shot from the original cover session.

 

‘Stand By Me’ (Live at Bonehead’s Outtake) 

 Unreleased intimate version of ‘Stand By Me’ recorded at Bonehead’s home studio.

 

‘Setting Sun’ (Radio Broadcast)           

A rare acoustic version of The Chemical Brothers’ 1996 No.1 single which Noel Gallagher co-wrote and sang.           

 

‘My Big Mouth’ (Live at Knebworth Park)

This track made its live debut at Knebworth, the first time fans heard material from the forthcoming BE HERE NOW album.
