Noel Gallagher has revealed that a 30th anniversary reissue of Oasis’ 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’ will be released next year.
Speaking to Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera, Noel revealed that they’ve found tapes dating back to their 1994 recording sessions in the Sony archives.
“We thought they were lost, but they were mislabelled. They are wonderful versions of those songs, some acoustic versions.”
The new tracks being added to the re-release will include acoustic versions of classics such as ‘Live Forever’, ‘Slide Away’ and ‘Supersonic’.
When ‘Definitely Maybe’ was released back in August of 1994, it was the fastest-selling debut album in British history at the time and went on to sell over 8.5 million copies globally.
Even though a reissue will be released, Noel has well and truly shut down the idea of a reunion tour.
“There won’t be a tour – we won’t come back to play them together,” he said.
Last month, Noel’s brother Liam got fans' hopes up when he tweeted saying an Oasis reunion was “happening,” and Noel didn’t shut down the idea.
Speaking about the tweet, Noel said "he should get his people to call my people, they know who they are, they know where we are... Stop talking on the fucking internet and let's see what you've got to say."
When the interviewer asked if it's only a matter of a phone call, Noel replies, "you would think right?
"He's got my number, he’s got my manager’s number. Call us."
"But you know what?" Gallagher adds. "He won't call."
When asked why? Noel responds, "Well, why indeed."
