Noel and Liam Gallagher have scrapped a much-hoped for an Oasis Greatest Hits album.
It’s said they “couldn’t agree” on the direction the project was going in, so have given up on the idea.
The Greatest Hits record was supposed to feature an entire bonus disc crammed full of unreleased songs, B-sides and demos.
The main disc was going to have all of their best-loved songs.
Sadly, the project is dead in the water.
Noel told Record Collector:
“You know that Don’t Stop demo that we put up? We had planned to do an Oasis ‘best of the 2000s’ because it’s a period of Oasis that the masses are not interested in but for the actual fans there’s some great tunes.”
“Well, we did this best-of and the bonus disc was gonna be all these unreleased songs. But – ha!”
“Unfortunately we couldn’t agree on something and it got dropped by the wayside.”
He also talked about two covers of The Beatles that they performed. It included a punk version of ‘Eleanor Rigby’ and an “amazing” version of ‘It’s All Too Much’, recorded on the day George Harrison tragically died.
It was even going to feature collaborations with Yes drummer Alan White, and The Smiths guitar-man Johnny Marr.
Instead, Noel will be releasing 14 songs by himself.
His record will include music that failed to make the cut on any Oasis records.
That’s something at least for fans, as well as the Knebworth film.
