In what could be described as the ultimate Battle Of The Bands and a head-on collision between musical heavyweights that hasn’t been seen since the Britpop glory days of Oasis going head-to-head with Blur with “Let It Roll” and “Country House”, new albums by The Beatles and Oasis are both released next month on the same day.

Oasis’ long-awaited ‘best of’ collection, “Stop The Clocks”, is out on November 21, as is “Love”, the reworking of classic Beatles songs by the band’s long-serving producer George Martin.

“Stop The Clocks”, as Uncut readers will know from this month’s exclusive interview with Noel and Liam Gallagher, is “a dream set list” of their favourite Oasis songs – mostly drawn from their first two albums, “Definitely Maybe” and “(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?”, which account for 10 of the 18 tracks.

The Beatles’ “Love” is effectively the soundtrack to the Cirque du Soleil show of the same name, a celebration of The Beatles that opened last year in Las Vegas. The album was produced by George Martin and his son Giles from Abbey Road mastertapes to create a new perspective on Beatles classics like “Get Back”, “I Am The walrus”, “I Want To Hold Your Hand”, “Strawberry Fields Forever” and “Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds”.

Both albums are reviewed in the new issue of Uncut, on sale from Tuesday October 31.
