Be Here Now reissue

Oasis have taken a break from calling each other potatoes to announce a reissue of their 1997 album, Be Here Now. It’s the latest in the Chasing the Sun: 1993-1997 series, through which the group also released reissues of 1994’s Definitely Maybe and 1995’s (What’s the Story) Morning Glory. Be Here Now: Chasing the Sun Edition will be released in standard CD and vinyl format on October 7, via Big Brother Records, as well as special edition 3xCD and super deluxe box set that features vinyl, a coffee table book and more.

“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,” Noel Gallagher says in a press release. “We got as far as the first track before we couldn’t be arsed anymore and gave up… it does sound fucking mega though!”

Those wacky Gallagher brothers! Take a look at the tracklist for the reissue below.
