It’s about to turn 25 years since the release of Oasis’s second album ‘(What’s the Story) Morning Glory?’, which several members of our editorial team are in firm age-related denial about.
The band remains on hiatus thanks to ongoing tensions between its founding brothers, but celebrations are afoot on YouTube.
This Friday (2 October) there’s going to be an ‘official album playback and singalong event’ starting at 6pm BST, which will showcase the recently remastered (in both an audio and video sense) music videos for some of the album’s key tracks.
Meanwhile, YouTube will also have a new interview with Noel Gallagher, and the activity will include promotion of new vinyl re-releases of the album.
It’s an interesting glimpse at the YouTube strategy for a (currently) non-active heritage artist, with the Oasis channel having grown to nearly 2.4 million subscribers, and their music closing in on 2bn YouTube views.
