Oasis teamed up with National Album Day to share a new lyric video for ‘Listen Up’ to celebrate the ’90s via NME.
National Album Day, which occurs tomorrow (October 14), would commemorate albums released in the 1990s. Oasis achieved the first and second most streamed albums of the decade, with ‘What’s The Story (Morning Glory)‘ (1995) taking first place and ‘Definitely Maybe‘ (1994) coming in second.
To celebrate, the band will release the lyric video for ‘Listen Up’ on the National Album Day website, where fans will be able to watch it exclusively for 24 hours. ‘Listen Up’ originally appeared on the B-side of ‘Cigarettes & Alcohol’, the last single from ‘Definitely Maybe’.
Noel Gallagher said of the accolade:
“I’m thrilled, but I wouldn’t say I was that surprised that ‘(What’s The Story) Morning Glory?’ has been voted the most streamed album of the 90s – I still do have my faith in the taste of people in this country. I mean if you’ve got Wonderwall and Don’t Look Back In Anger on an album, you’re gonna be all right aren’t ya…”
“For certain people, it’ll be bringing back memories of their youth in the 90s and that brilliantly amazing decade we all lived through and then for the young people coming to it now, the songs deal with just the universal truths of life, and they will always be timeless… You know, of love and loss and heartbreak and friendship and the weather. All the universal things that we that we live through on a day-to-day basis that we don’t really notice. So thanks to everybody.”
