Oasis have shared a new Sawmills Outtake of their track ‘Columbia’, taken from the upcoming Definitely Maybe 30th anniversary reissue.

The reissue of the classic album will land on August 30 and feature unheard versions of tracks from the iconic 1994 debut album.

The deluxe edition features discarded recordings from the album’s original sessions, as well as outtakes newly mixed by Noel Gallagher and Callum Marinho.

The first track to appear from the sessions is a new outtake of ‘Columbia’ from the album’s recording sessions at Sawmills Studios in Cornwall.

Watch a brand new lyric video for the new version below.

Definitely Maybe will be available on Limited-Edition Deluxe 4LP and Deluxe 2CD formats, exclusive coloured vinyl and cassette, as well as digitally.

Liam Gallagher is currently out on a 30th anniversary UK tour of Definitely Maybe, where he is playing the 1994 album in its entirety.

Discussing the gigs, Gallagher said: “I’m bouncing around the house to announce the ‘Definitely Maybe’ Tour. The most important album of the ‘90s bar none. I wouldn’t be anywhere without it and neither would you, so let’s celebrate together LG x.”

During one show on the tour, Liam accused Noel of “still playing hard to get” when it comes to an Oasis reunion.

When it came to introducing the ‘Whatever’ B-side ‘Half the World Away’ – originally sung by Noel – Liam said: “So I’m gonna dedicate this next tune to my little brother, who’s still playing hard to get.”

He continued: “But that’s alright. Word on the street is he was spotted in a really posh chocolate shop – one of them Thorntons – buying some chocolates. So you never know! D’you know what I mean?”
