Oasis' Back Catalogue Will Soon Be Available On Spotify

Music Week reports that Oasis' entire catalogue is set to arrive on Spotify soon, as the band's management says it's "purely a matter of timing".

The band is one of the biggest holdouts in the UK since it launched in 2008. The post-Oasis work of both Noel and Liam Gallagher (High Flying Birds and Beady Eye) is on the service, but Ignition has not made track available from albums like Definitely Maybe, (What's The Story) Morning Glory? and Dig Out Your Soul.

Ignition Records director John Leahy said: "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."

Ignition co-owner Alec McKinlay, who has worked with Oasis since 1993, 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."

Other long time holdouts have recently appeared on the platform, including Metallica, Pink Floyd and The Eagles. Other bands not available include The Beatles, Led Zeppeln and AC/DC.

Ignition, meanwhile, is busy handling self-released albums from Primal Scream, Stereophonics and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. It uses a model similar to Oasis' Big Brother Recordings.
