An acoustic demo version of Oasis’ classic song She’s Electric has appeared online, the track will feature on a new record reissue.
The song is taken from the band’s 14x platinum selling album, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? It was released back in 1995 and went to number 1 in the Irish music charts.
In February 2014, Oasis announced on their website that their first three studio albums would be re-released. The new editions are part of the Chasing The Sun series from Big Brother Recordings. The remastered albums are being put out to celebrate the groups’ 20th anniversary.
The first reissue was a three-disc version called Definitely Maybe: Chasing the Sun, released on May 19th. The landmark LP was initially released in 1994, the new Definitely Maybe edition includes rare, live and unreleased tracks from the band.
Noel Gallagher wrote about She’s Electric’s lyrics in the reissued edition, “‘I’ll be you and you be me’ is from Stop, Look and Listen. We used to be at school and you’d have a class where’d they play TV. It was Sesame Street but an English version. That stayed with me for years until I wrote ‘She’s Electric.'”
