Oasis detail 30th anniversary reissue of 'Definitely Maybe'

A few days after Liam Gallagher tours arenas in the United Kingdom and Ireland reviewing the songs from 'Definitely Maybe', the reissue of the album is finally announced. No, there is no Oasis reunion in sight.

As you know if you are reading this, we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of Oasis' debut. It featured timeless anthems like 'Supersonic' and 'Live Forever', along with lost gems like 'Slide Away'.

The reissue will be released on August 30 including the remastering of the 2014 songs, now along with the discarded recording sessions from Monnow Valley Studios and others from Sawmills Studios. They have been mixed for the first time by Noel Gallagher and Callum Marinho. There will also be additional liner notes by Alan McGee of Creation Records and journalist Hamish MacBain.
