OASIS fans have gone crazy for the group's 'new' track Don't Stop after Noel Gallagher released it at midnight.
The 52-year-old rock'n'roll star found the song, which had been thought to have been "lost forever", while rifling through old CDs beacuse he was bored at home.
Fans gave the track a warm welcome when it was released in the early hours of the morning.
One wrote: "Noel Gallagher once again proving why he is one of the best song writers of all time.
"The fact Don’t stop could be forgotten about and lost is mental and shows how Oasis constantly made songs and b-sides that are a level above any other bands main songs. Just simply class."
Another tweeted: "Love it, can't believe I have never heard this before, could easily have been a single should have at least made a b side or album track."
A third said simply: "Don't Stop is a tune."
Writing on Twitter yesterday, Noel gave fans the good news that the long-lost track had been found.
He said: "Hey there dudes and dollies. Like the rest of the world 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 in boxes at home.
"As fate would have it I have stumbled across an old demo which I thought had been lost forever. As far as I’m aware there is only one version of this tune “out there” from an Oasis soundcheck in Hong Kong about 15 years ago.
"I’m not sure whether the soundcheck version pre dates the demo as there’s no date on the CD. I know some of you love this tune so we thought we’d put it 'out there' for you to enjoy/argue over. It’ll be up on the internet from midnight.
"The song is called: ‘Don’t Stop…’ Hope everyone is staying safe and trying to ride out the lockdown with the minimum of fuss. You’re welcome by the way."
The song is thought to be written around the time of the band's 2005 LP, Don’t Believe the Truth.
Despite Oasis splitting in 2009 after Noel and Liam fell out before V Festival, fans are still desperate for them to get back together. However, Noel rejected his brother's recent offer of reforming for a charity gig in aid of the NHS.
