DOA Northerers oasis have moved their whole catalogue in the US and Canada to Reprise Records, and not just their swan song, Dig Out Your Soul, after being with Epic for over a decade. They may have become unhappy with Sony in North America because their success has waned here for the past ten years time and reduced promotion, yet could still close the place in cities such as Cincinnati. In their backyard, they had been indie, starting with Creation and later vanity label Big Brother.
The last row between Noel and Liam Gallagher may be the final blow, and no reconciliation is on the horizon, so "Our Kid" and the rest of the band after Noel's departure will launch a spinoff band.
Time Flies: 1994-2009 will cover their whole career while Stop the Clocks, which mainly focused on early days, left out some UK hits. It will be released this June.
emusic now has the catalogue in most countries (Sony catalogue releases now qualify).
