(What's the Story) Morning Glory? (often shortened to Morning Glory) is the second studio album of Oasis. It was released on October 2, 1995 by Creation Records. Produced by Owen Morris, recordings took place at Rockfield Studios in Wales. The album is also the first one to feature Alan White, who replaced Tony McCarroll as drummer in the same year.

Morning Glory became instantly successful upon release, selling a record-breaking 345,000 copies in its first week in the United Kingdom. The album went straight to No. 1 on the UK Albums chart, where it remained 10 weeks. Morning Glory was largely successful in the United States as well, peaking at No. 4 on the Billboard 200 and was certified 4× Platinum. The album produced six charting singles: "Some Might Say", "Don't Look Back in Anger", "Champagne Supernova", "Wonderwall", "Morning Glory", and "Roll With It". The album won Best British Album at the 1996 Brit Awards. Critically, the album initially received lukewarm reviews, critics deemed the record as inferior to their debut album Definitely Maybe. This reception would change over the years, and Morning Glory was soon hailed to be one of the most impactful albums of all time.
