will release their first ever digital only single on October 21, when 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down' becomes available to download. The track, and accompanying video is taken from the eagerly anticipated DVD of the same name, which follows the band on their colossal world tour of 2005/2006.
What happens when a filmmaker follows one of the world's biggest bands on a year long world tour? What happens when the film maker is granted unique access to that band, is present for the ups and downs, the moments of greatness and the periods of the same interview in 10 different languages in as many days? What happens when that band is Oasis, traveling across 26 countries on their biggest world tour to date playing to a total of over 2 million people?
The answer is 'Lord Don't Slow Me Down', a limited edition double DVD set that not only gives you the definitive feature length documentary seen in selected cinemas last year, but also the option of voice over commentaries from the band, a Noel Gallagher
Q & A session with fans from New York City alongside out takes from the film, and a second 90 minute live disc (available for a limited time only) capturing the band's homecoming show at the City of Manchester Stadium together with footage sent in by fans from around the world who attended that show. If you wanted to know what the members of Oasis make of their lives on tour and their audience, then the answers are on these two discs.
Directed by Baillie Walsh who has previously worked with Massive Attack
(he made 'Safe From Harm'), Spiritualised, New Order
, and is now working on a film with Daniel Craig
, this DVD set is a compendium of Oasis entertainment par excellence.
