Oasis drops 'Don't Go Away (Mustique Demo)'
The track will be on the 'Be Here Now' reissue, out Oct. 7
Oasis just released “Don’t Go Away (Mustique Demo),” the first unheard demo off the band’s third album Be Here Now’s reissue, on Friday.
The track was recorded on Mustique, an island in the Caribbean, in 1996 by Noel Gallagher and Owen Morris. The 14 recordings from that session, which were the original demos for Be Here Now, have previously never been released, and were only recently unearthed in Oasis’ label’s archives, according to a press release. All 14 demos will appear on Oct. 7’s Be Here Now reissue, which is part of the Chasing the Sun series.
“As the years went by, I’d started to accept that the songs on Be Here Now were in fact insanely long… too long,” said Noel Gallagher in a statement when announcing the reissue. “Someone (I can’t remember who) had the idea that we revisit, 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 f—ing mega though!”
