Oasis' new album is available for legal download on the German iTUNES website - even though it isn't scheduled for release until 30 May (05).

This news follows the appearance of pirate copies of DON'T BELIEVE THE TRUTH on British auction website eBAY last month (APR05), prompting fears the LP's release date would be brought forward before the new batch of songs became readily available on the internet.

At first glance only snippets of several songs are available on the website, but a quick search shows the full album to be available for download.

Download provider Apple are refusing to comment, while Oasis' spokesperson is currently unavailable.
