Oasis Expand 'Be Here Now' Album To 3-Disc Set


(Gibson) Oasis's third album Be Here Now has been criticized before for being "bloated". That was nothing! It's now coming out in a massive expanded 3xCD set with 40 tracks.

Part of the band's Chasing The Sun series of Oasis reissues, it's out in October 2016. Noel Gallagher has remixed début single "D'You Know What I Mean?" for the project.

Says Noel of the new mix, titled "NG's 2016 Rethink", "As the years went by I'd started to accept that the songs on Be Here Now were in fact insanely long… too long! Someone (I can't remember who) had the idea that we re-visit, re-edit the entire album for posterity's sake. We got as far as the first track before we couldn't be arsed anymore and gave up….it does sound ****ing mega though!" Noel's remix of "D'You Know What I Mean?" is not to be mistaken for an "edit". It is still over seven minutes long.

The Special Edition CD, Deluxe Download and Super Deluxe Box Set formats also include the mysterious Mustique demos - 14 previously unreleased album demos recorded on the Caribbean Island in 1996.

"They bring back memories of what turned out to be - if nothing else - a bloody awesome holiday!" says Gallagher of the demos. Be Here Now remains the fastest selling album in U.K. chart history - 700,000 copies in its first three days - and sold over 8m worldwide. See the tracklisting here.
