Oasis have unveiled a rare rehearsal video which shows them playing ‘Be Here Now’ single ‘All Around The World’ live in an intimate setting.
The Britpop band recently reissued their third album ‘Be Here Now’ with unreleased tracks and other bonus features.
‘Be Here Now’ was originally released in August 1997, following on from the Manchester band’s 1994 debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’ and 1995 second LP ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’.
“I’ve tried to redo the whole album. I went into the studio and after about two days I was like, ‘this is missing the point, the album is supposed to be this fucking mental’,” Noel Gallagher recently explained of the ‘Be Here Now’ reissue.
“I went back to a couple of things I’d edited and though ‘nah, they sound fucking shit, they sound better when there’s no singing before three minutes’ [puts head back, inhales deeply through nose] so, y’know, you’re kind of digesting the cocaine before the singing starts. It is to be accompanied with a crate of beer and a bag of fucking charlie, and don’t be making any plans for the next couple of days. That’s the spirit in which it was intended. And if you listen to it in that spirit, it might be the greatest album of all time.”
The band’s remastered reissue of ‘Be Here Now’ is out now and streaming online.
