The Times, in conjunction with iTunes, are to release a selection of live recordings by Noel Gallagher taken from his semi-acoustic performance at the Royal Albert Hall with special guests on 27th March 2007 in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.
The Dreams We Have As Children (Live for Teenage Cancer Trust) features classic and rare tracks from the Oasis canon along with several cover versions of some of Noels favourite artists. Songs by The Beatles and The Smiths are featured here along with a very special duet with Paul Weller performing The Jams The Butterfly Collector.
From Tuesday 10th March, The Times will print a link in the paper each day (for five days) which takes readers to a specific page on iTunes where they can download a different song each day for free. Then on Sunday 15th March, The Sunday Times will be giving away an 11 track CD with the newspaper which, alongside the downloads, gives readers the full tracklisting for The Dreams We Have As Children (Live for Teenage Cancer Trust). A donation has been made to Teenage Cancer Trust in respect of the use of these recordings. On 16th March the full album will be available to buy digitally (only) from a selection of online retailers.
Oasis are long time supporters of Teenage Cancer Trust and are proud to continue their support. As well as Noels appearance with special guests in 2007, the band headlined the event in 2002. In addition Noel has made several guest appearances himself over the decade.
To celebrate the release of Dig Out Your Soul, the seventh studio album from Oasis, plus their record-breaking summer 2009 tour (tickets available here or call 0844 412 4638). The Times and Times Online are offering you five free Noel Gallagher tracks to download from Tuesday, March 10 to Saturday, March 14.
Each day from Tuesday youll find a new song from the Oasis musicians live, acoustic performance at the Royal Albert Hall with special guests in support of the Teenage Cancer Trust. For more information on the new album and the band, visit the Oasis website.
