Oasis look set to secure their ninth UK Number One album, despite splitting up 14 years ago!
The band who broke up in 2009, look set to bag another UK Number One album, thanks to the special 25th anniversary reissue of their B-sides record, ‘The Masterplan’.
It would also mark a first UK Number One album for the band, since their 2010 compilation, ‘Time Flies… (1994-2009)’.
‘The Masterplan’ was released as a compilation LP of B-sides, and originally featured on tracks from the first three Oasis studio albums, including ‘Definitely Maybe’ (1994), ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ (1995), and ‘Be Here Now’ (1997).
This collection arrived last week (November 3), and also features the incredible title track, which Noel Gallagher even described as one of the best songs that he has ever written.
