Oasis are releasing a deluxe reissue of 1997’s third album Be Here Now. It includes 14 previously unreleased album demos recorded on Mustique Island, a Caribbean island, in 1996. They are appropriately labeled the “Mustique demos.” Now the band has shared a demo version of “Don’t Go Away.” Listen below.

Previously Oasis had shared a new mix of the album’s single “D’You Know What I Mean?” by guitarist/singer/main songwriter Noel Gallagher which is being tagged as “NG’s 2016 Rethink.” Then the Britpop icons shared a video for the new version of “D’You Know What I Mean?” Fittingly, it was a re-edited version of the original 1997 video for the song. The original directors, Dom & Nic, and members of the original production team oversaw the new version. Also on October 2 Supersonic, a documentary on Oasis from the producers behind the acclaimed Oscar-winning Amy Winehouse documentary Amy, is released. We recently posted the trailer and you can watch that here.

Also below again is the full tracklist for the Be Here Now reissue.

Strange to hear these demos. D’You Know What I Mean sounds a bit like Wonderwall to begin, and My Big Mouth is lacking the loud, annoying guitars at the beginning, merely opening on the main riff.

All are worth a listen, so wait till October!
