Following only 14 months after Oasis’s classic 1994 album Definitely Maybe, widely regarded one of the greatest debut albums, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? is the UK’s fifth best-selling album of all time and best-selling album of the nineties. The album entered the UK Official Album Chart at No.1 with 269,000 sales, with a total of 10 weeks at the summit since release and almost eight and a half years in the UK Official Charts cumulatively. Worldwide, it went Top 10 in every major market in the world and became the band’s breakthrough album in the US, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 with over 5 million sales, and a global total now in excess of 22 million.





Produced by Noel Gallagher and Owen Morris, (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? was recorded at the fabled Rockfield Studios in Monmouth, Wales, completed in a staggeringly brief 12 day period during May and June 1995.

An undeniably superlative rock record, it includes several of Oasis’ biggest selling UK singles – the legendary, universally loved anthem ‘Wonderwall’, ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’, ‘Roll With It’, ‘SomeMight Say’ together with tracks like ‘She’s Electric’, ‘Morning Glory’ and ‘Champagne Supernova’, which are timeless anthems and radio staples known to every generation of music fan.

(What’s The Story) Morning Glory? established Oasis as a national and international phenomenon, the most universally popular British guitar band since the glory days of The Beatles, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin, and the album’s enduring and omnipresent appeal was demonstrated when it was awarded Best Album of 30 Years at The BRIT Awards 2010. In the years since its release, the album has inspired thousands of young guns to pick up guitars and form bands and is counted by dozens of successful bands and songwriters as a major influence on their careers.
