Oasis have announced a reissue of their 1997 album, Be Here Now. It’s out October 7 via Big Brother Recordings and follows the reissues of the band’s first two albums in their Chasing The Sun: 1993-1997 series. The Be Here Now Chasing the Sun Edition will feature a standard CD and vinyl, in a special edition 3xCD package, and a super deluxe box set that includes that as well as a vinyl LP, hardback coffee table book with new liner notes, “exclusive vinyl” (which also includes a sampler of previously unreleased demos from the band’s time on the Caribbean island of Mustique), and Oasis merch. Watch the Be Here Now Chasing the Sun 1993-1997 trailer below.

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 fucking mega though!
The reissue features one new mix, of the album opener D’You Know What I Mean? which you can hear below. It’s on disc two as NG’s [Noel Gallagher] 2016 Rethink.
