Spotify apparently will add the Oasis back catalog “in the near future”.
That’s based on Music Week, which has talked to the band’s record label about whether or not the Oasis back catalogue will ever make its way to the Swedish music program, or whether or not the Pretty Green firm will allow it Slide Away.
Although A few Might State that the Gallagher brothers are not likely to be too irritated about reaching a deal with Spotify, Ignition Records director John Leahy stated otherwise, meaning that the band’s abums such as Definitely Maybe and Morning Glorywill be added any day today.
“It is the circumstance that historically the Oasis catalogue isn’t on Spotify in the UK, but we’re speaking with Spotify at the moment to deal with that – and it will be addressed very soon,” he is cited as having said.
Ignition co-owner Alec McKinlay added, “It’s simply a matter of timing. If you’re dealing with artists in any part of the industry, you need to engage with fans in the way they would like you to.”
That will be pleasant news for Oasis lovers, with a few people on the Spotify forum moaning about the lack of Oasis tunes on the program.
Spotify’s most recent big named band additions have included Metallica and Pink Floyd, which the program added after Wish You Were Here strike one million listens. Here’s wishing that after Oasis, Led Zepplin will obtain a Whole Lotta Love from the service too.
Spotify was not instantly accessible for comment, and it’s still not clear when we could expect the Oasis tracks to arrive.
