The band respond to three tracks that appeared online this week
What were thought of as three brand new Oasis songs which leaked online earlier this week (May 6) are apparently not tracks from the band’s forthcoming studio album, the band have stated.
Fans had found links and posted them across fansites and messageboards fuelling rumour that these must be new material from the band who have been recording their eighth studio album, due for release this September.
In a statement on Oasis’ official website Oasisinet.com, the following statement has been posted: “A number of old Oasis songs have appeared on the internet amidst claims that the band’s new album has leaked.
The songs are actually all old demos from previous sessions and well informed fans will have known that these tracks have been in circulation for some time. In fact, most are versions of songs that have already been released.
None of the songs are from sessions for the band’s new studio album.”
The three songs were entitled “I Wanna Live A Dream (In My Record Machine)”, “Nothin’ On Me” and “Stop The Clocks”.
The tracks are still available to hear on this Myspace page: www.myspace.com/newoasissongs.
The new album, the follow-up to 2005’s Don’t Believe The Truth, has been produced by Dave Sardy, whose previous credits include the Rolling Stones, Johnny Cash and Primal Scream.
