The Mail On Sunday gave away an exclusive CD on the 15th March 2009.
The Dreams We Have As Children is a collection of songs recorded at the London Royal Albert Hall on 27 March 2007 by Noel Gallagher and Gem Archer of English rock band Oasis in support of Teenage Cancer Trust. The album's title stems from a lyric in the Oasis song, "Fade Away".
Five of the songs were released over the course of five days as free downloads on iTunes, followed by a physical CD give-away with The Sunday Times, which contained another eleven recordings from the performance.
