Oasis release 'lost' song Don't Stop

It's not a reunion but Noel Gallagher has been digging out his old Oasis demos while on lockdown and seems to have found a gem he thought had been lost forever. 

The Noel-sung and strummed Don't Stop (previously also known as Bye Bye My Family) has only been heard by fans via a bootleg recorded at a Oasis pre-gig soundcheck on 7 April 2009, a few months before the band split. But it's now emerged that there's a demo of the song in existence in Noel's house that he's now posted online via Oasis's channels and streaming platforms.

“I’ve had infinite time to kill lately so I thought I’d finally look and find out what was actually on the hundreds of faceless unmarked CDs I’ve got lying around at home," says Noel. As fate would have it, I have stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever.”

You can hear the original rough quality soundcheck version below too.
