At nearly eight minutes long and packed with as much Gallagherism humanly possible, Oasis‘ Britpop anthem “Champagne Supernova” is one of the grandest musical statements of the ’90s. Now more than 20 years after its release, the song gets reimagined and condensed into a yearning electronic-pop thriller thanks to Yumi Zouma.

The New Zealand-based quartet have taken on the task of covering the entirely of Oasis’ (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? album through Turntable Kitchen, and this morning have followed last month’s dream-popping, ‘gazey cover of “She’s Electric” with their take on perhaps the Gallagher Brothers’ most epic moment. Listen to their version of “Champagne Supernova” below via Soundcloud.

“Even when we realised that an Oasis album could potentially be an option in terms of something we could actually do in a Yumi Zouma way, we weren’t 100 percent sure whether it would just sound totally ridiculous or not,” guitarist Charlie Ryder tells Gorilla Vs. Bear. “It wasn’t until we tried the first song that we had an initial idea for — Champagne Supernova — that we knew we had finally settled on something rad.”

Rad it certainly is.

Yumi Zouma’s (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? is out April 6 and marks the debut release for Turntable Kitchen’s new “Sounds Delicious” subscription series, which offers full-on covers albums on limited-edition vinyl. Pre-orders for “Sounds Delicious” are $25 a month, and this year it promises unique fully-packaged vinyl LPs like Ben Gibbard covering Teenage Fanclub’s Bandwagonesque; The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Kristin Kontrol, and members of Titus Andronicus covering Tom Petty’s Full Moon Fever; and Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado covering Bruce Springsteen’s Born To Run, among others.
