Oasis Marks 30 Years of 'Supersonic' with Special Release

Iconic Britpop band Oasis is commemorating the 30th anniversary of their groundbreaking track, 'Supersonic,' by reintroducing it as a physical single. Originally released on April 11, 1994, 'Supersonic' marked the band's debut single and later became a cornerstone of their legendary first studio album, 'Definitely Maybe'.

The Origins of 'Supersonic'

Written by Noel Gallagher during a studio lunch break, 'Supersonic' started as a demo. Recorded in a single day at the Pink Museum Studio in Liverpool on December 19, 1993, the track was produced by Oasis alongside their live sound engineer, Mark Coyle.

Three Decades Later

Now, three decades after its initial release, Liam Gallagher has confirmed that the band will reissue 'Supersonic' as a physical single. The original CD single and a limited edition pearl-colored and numbered 7" vinyl will be available on April 12, 2024.

Additional B-Side

Accompanying the re-release, fans can enjoy the B-side track 'Take Me Away,' which originally appeared alongside 'Supersonic' back in the '90s.

Cost-Effective Creation

Remarkably, 'Supersonic' cost a mere £100 to produce. Liam Gallagher's vocals were captured in a single take, and the song reached Number 31 on the UK Singles Chart and Number Two on the UK Independent Singles Chart. It also marked Oasis' first track to chart in the US.

Looking Ahead

As fans eagerly await this nostalgic reissue, Noel Gallagher has hinted at another milestone: a reissue of Oasis' debut LP, 'Definitely Maybe,' set to arrive later this year.
