Ahead of the release of the reissued Be Here Now as part of the Chasing the Sun series, Oasis have released the original demo version of “Don’t Go Away,” making it the first of their Mustique Demos to ever be made publicly available.
Recorded in the Caribbean in early 1996 by Noel Gallagher and producer Owen Morris, the Mustique Demos are the original demos for Be Here Now. The original tapes were misplaced after the completion of recording, resulting in the demos becoming nearly mythical among the band’s fans. The tapes remained effectively lost until recently turning up among the label’s archive, and now all 14 Mustique Demos will be available in special editions of the new Chasing The Sun edition of Be Here Now. The reissue will be available on Oct. 7—you can preorder it here. Listen to “Don’t Go Away” below.
