The record helped push Britpop into the spotlight in the mid-90s and spawned the singles Supersonic, Shakermaker, Live Forever, Cigarettes & Alcohol and Rock ’N’ Roll Star.

The reissue will launch on August 29 through Big Brother Recordings, while a double picture disc will be released the following day exclusively through the band's website. 

Oasis fans are also being encouraged to share their memories of the album on social media using the hashtag #DefMaybe25.
