Oasis will release a remastered version of their classic debut album Definitely Maybe on May 19, with exclusive rare and unreleased extras.
After posting a video on Instagram last night which read ‘26 Feb – 9am’, rumors quickly surfaced speculating of a potential reunion. But it has now been confirmed that the band plans to release the 1994 album Definitely Maybe to mark its 20th anniversary. A remastered version of the album will include rare and unreleased recordings and will be available as a CD and digital download, as well as a three-disc special edition version including rare recordings demos, a 12” vinyl LP featuring all the bonus CD content as a free download and a box set which features the LP and the CDs. The track Supersonic will also be reissued as a 12” vinyl to coincide with this year’s Record Store Day on April 19.
The remastered version is available to order now via www.oasisinet.com. Also for a limited period only the buy will include a replica cassette of their original 1993 demos, handed out by the band before Oasis were signed.
The release’s bonus content featured in the reissue will also include the band’s single “Whatever,” unheard acoustic versions of “Live Forever” and “Shakermaker” recorded in Paris, an early demo of “Half The World Away” recorded in Noel Gallagher’s Tokyo hotel room, a demo of the rare song “Strange Thing” and a recording of “Sad Song” taken from a show at Manchester Academy.
