New Oasis short documentary debuts on MySpace Music

This just in from Oasis' publicists:

MySpace Music, the world's most popular music community, is proud to announce the premiere of the new documentary from Oasis titled Dig Out Your Soul in the Streets. This insightful short film marks the first HD debut in the history of MySpace Music. The documentary was shot by The Malloys, who have directed numerous music videos for The White Stripes and are currently filming the new Zach Braff feature film 8 Track.

In the weeks leading up to the release of Dig Out Your Soul, the latest album from Oasis, the band traveled to New York City where they taught street musicians to play a number of their new songs, thus subtly leaking the album before its release. The Malloys followed Oasis and the street musicians throughout the process and created the 18-minute black-and-white documentary that is playing exclusively on MySpace Music.

The selected street musicians, came from all parts of New York City, and have a variety of different ethnic, musical and creative backgrounds. They performed Oasis's new songs at locations throughout the city, including MTA approved subway station platforms in Grand Central, Times Square, Penn Station and Astor Place.
