简介: Be Here Now is the third studio album by English rock band Oasis, released on 21 August 1997 by Creation Records. Following the worldwide success of their first two albums, Definitely Maybe (1994) and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995), the album was highly anticipated. Oasis' management company, Ignition, were aware of the dangers of overexposure, and before release sought to control media access to the album. The campaign included limiting pre-release radio airplay and forcing journalists to sign gag orders. The tactics alienated the press and many industry personnel connected with the band, and fueled large-scale speculation and publicity within the British music scene. On the first day of release, Be Here Now sold over 424,000 copies, selling faster than their previous two albums, becoming the fastest-selling album in British chart history, while initial reviews were overwhelmingly positive. Producer Owen Morris said the recording sessions were marred by arguments and drug abuse, and that the band's only motivations were commercial. As of 2008, the album had sold eight million copies worldwide. It was the biggest selling album of 1997 in the UK, with 1.47 million units sold that year. The album topped the UK Vinyl Albums Chart in 2016, 19 years after its original release.
