Noel Gallagher Hints at Release Date of New Album
We're apparently going to be getting albums from both Gallagher brothers in 2017. Noel Gallagher revealed that he's got another High Flying Birds album in the works, and that we can expect it in time for the holiday season.
As NME reports, Gallagher was a guest on actor-comedian Russell Brand's show on Britain's Radio X and dropped the news. Pressed for information, such as a release date, title or song titles, the former Oasis guitarist said, "I believe it's slated for a November release."
Brand prodded further for song titles, to which Gallagher responded, "There's one just called 'Instrumental No. 3."
"Ooh, look at that," Brand said after hearing the title. "He's on a voyage. A voyage of discovery."
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' last record was 2015's Chasing Yesterday, which topped the British chart and peaked and No. 35 in the U.S. But for fans who don't want to wait that long to hear his voice again, they will be able to hear him sing this Friday (April 28) thanks to his background vocal cameo on "We Got the Power," a song off of Gorillaz's new record, Humanz.
We're also still waiting for complete details of Liam Gallagher's solo debut. All we've learned so far is that it will be called As You Were and that the band he's assembled is "dangerous." However, with a handful of festival dates scheduled for the summer, including a set a Lollapalooza in Chicago in August -- the only U.S. stop on the calendar so far -- news could arrive soon.
