Although this shouldn't surprise a single fan out there, Oasis' very own Noel Gallagher has made it clear that his band would not be following in the footsteps of Radiohead's "tip jar" style of releasing an album online. In fact, during a recent interview with BBC6 he claimed that the whole pay what you like method was strictly a marketing campaign, where he said: "To be honest, to me it looked like marketing - a great way of getting a load of marketing for free really. But good for them. That's what they do, they're rebels and outsiders."
As for the new Oasis album, Dig Out Your Soul, which will hit stores in the US on October 7, Gallagher said that they shelled out too much money for top-notch help to simply give away the record for free. He explained: "I didn't spend a year in the most expensive studio in England, with the most expensive producer in America, and the most expensive graphic designer in London to then give it away. Fuck that."
