Be Here Now was the third studio album by Oasis, released 21 August 1997. Following the worldwide success of Definitely Maybe (1994) and (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995), the album was highly anticipated.

 

Oasis' management company, Ignition, was aware of the dangers of overexposure, and before release, sought to control media access to the album. 

 

The album was recorded at multiple recording studios in London, including Abbey Road Studios, as well as Ridge Farm Studios in Surrey. Compared to their previous releases, the songs on Be Here Now are anthemic, longer and contain many guitar overdubs. Noel Gallagher said this was done to make the album sound as "colossal" as possible. The album cover features a shot of the band members at Stocks House in Hertfordshire.

 

Be Here Now was an instant commercial success, selling faster than their previous two albums, and become the fastest-selling album in British chart history, while initial reviews were overwhelmingly positive.

 

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.
