Oasis announces 25th anniversary vinyl & cassette reissue of ‘Be Here Now’

Big Brother Recordings

Oasis‘ 1997 album Be Here Now is being reissued in celebration of its upcoming 25th anniversary.

The set will be available with remastered audio on vinyl and cassette on August 19, two days before the album’s original release date.

Coming off the star-making success of 1995’s (What’s the Story) Morning Glory?, Be Here Now was among the most anticipated new albums of the ’90s. In Oasis’ native U.K., it holds the record for the most copies sold in the first seven days of any album’s release.

Despite its initial success, Be Here Now is a polarizing record among fans and critics and is now often seen as the end marker of the phenomenon that Oasis and Britpop had become in the ’90s. It also marked the final Oasis album to include founding members Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs and Paul “Guigsy” McGuigan.

Be Here Now was previously reissued in 2016 with a newly remixed version of the single “D’You Know What I Mean?” by Noel Gallagher. Along with the news of the 25th-anniversary reissue, a new lyric video for the Noel mix has been released, which you can watch now on YouTube.
