Oasis return with the first single from their forthcoming seventh studio album, ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ on 29th September. ‘

The Shock Of The Lightning’, is regarded by principal song-writer Noel Gallagher as one of the band’s most instant songs “because it was written dead fast. And recorded dead fast. ‘The Shock of The Lightning’ basically is the demo. And it has retained its energy. And there’s a lot to be said for that, I think. The first time you record something is always the best.”   The eagerly awaited new album is released on 6th October on the band’s own Big Brother label across the world.


The B side to the single is the sought after Chemical Brothers remix of ‘Falling Down’, another song from ‘Dig Out Your Soul’. The Chemical Brothers remix is a psychedelic, acid-tinged take of the track which has been climbing club and radio charts after Big Brother sent it to a handful of DJ’s around the world.


This is the first time an Oasis single has been backed with a remix and fans purchasing downloads of ‘The Shock Of The Lightning’ via the band’s own web site at www.oasisinet.com or www.itunes.co.uk will also have the option of buying the video for the single. This is only available via those two web portals.

A strictly limited edition 7" vinyl collector’s box will be made available separately for fans from both oasisinet.com and select retailers to enable fans to collect all the 7" singles from the forthcoming album campaign.
