It’s the news that Oasis fans the world over have been waiting on for two years. Noel Gallagher has finally released the details of not one but two albums.
Speaking at a press conference in London overnight, Gallagher announced his debut solo album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds. The ten-track album will be released on his own Sour Mash label on 17 October. It was recorded in London and Los Angeles.
It includes the tracks Stop The Clocks and (I Wanna Live in a Dream in My) Record Machine; both of which have previously appeared online in demo form. Stop The Clocks also gave its name to the Oasis best-of collection released in 2006. The first single to be lifted from the album is believed The Death of You And Me.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be followed by a second album, recorded with psychedelic act the Amorphous Androgynous. The 18-track album was described by Gallagher at the announcement: “It’s really fucking far out man. It’s the furthest out I’ve ever been. It’s good though.”
Gallagher has long been an admirer of the group. They previously released a 23 minute remix of the single Falling Down (the last single Oasis released).
In the press conference (which can be viewed below), Gallagher also revealed more about the final argument between him and brother Liam that lead to Oasis’ split. The comical recount of events included the younger Gallagher channelling wrestler Randy Savage, throwing a plum and wielding a guitar as if wielding an axe.
What was Liam’s response? He simply tweeted “SHITBAG”.
