Noel Gallagher confirms ‘Definitely Maybe’ 30th anniversary reissue for 2024

Noel Gallagher has shared that there will be a reissue of Oasis’ ‘Definitely Maybe’ album coming in 2024, though confirmed there will not be a reunion tour taking place any time soon.

The upcoming reissue of the band’s debut LP is set for release next year and will mark 30 years since it was first shared. It also arrives following ongoing rumours that the band will reunite for a tour celebrating the occasion.

In a new interview, former guitarist, vocalist and songwriter Noel Gallagher has elaborated on what the upcoming release will feature, and put any hopes for an upcoming reunion to rest.

According to the musician, the 30th anniversary reissue of ‘Definitely Maybe’ will include a host of previously lost songs — which were made during the recording sessions at the time. Telling Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera how the tracks were uncovered, he said: “In the Sony archives we’ve found tapes dating to those sessions.”

“We thought they were lost, but they were mislabelled,” he added. “They are wonderful versions of those songs, some acoustic versions.”

He explained that the new tracks added to the re-release will include acoustic versions of fan-favourites, ‘Live Forever’, ‘Slide Away’ and ‘Supersonic’. He also reaffirmed that fans shouldn’t hope to see any live renditions of the new songs anytime soon.
