Spotify to add Oasis back catalogue

Definitely maybe

MUSIC STREAMING SERVICE Spotify reportedly will add the Oasis back catalogue "in the near future".

That's according to Music Week, which has spoken to the band's record label about whether the Oasis back catalogue will ever make its way onto the Swedish music service, or whether the Pretty Green firm will let it Slide Away.

While Some Might Say that the Gallagher brothers are unlikely to be too bothered about reaching a deal with Spotify, Ignition Records director John Leahy said otherwise, hinting that the band's abums including Definitely Maybe and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? will be added any day now.

"It is the case that historically the Oasis catalogue isn't on Spotify in the UK, but we're talking to Spotify at the moment to address that - and it will be addressed very soon," he is quoted as having said.

Ignition co-owner Alec McKinlay added, "It's purely a matter of timing. If you're working with artists in any part of the industry, you have to engage with fans in the way they want you to."

This will be welcome news for Oasis fans, with some people on the Spotify forum moaning about the lack of Oasis tunes on the service.

Spotify's most recent big name band additions have included Metallica and Pink Floyd, which the service added after Wish You Were Here hit one million listens. Here's hoping that after Oasis, Led Zepplin will get a Whole Lotta Love from the service too. 

Spotify was not immediately available for comment, and it's still unclear when we can expect the Oasis tracks to arrive. µ
