Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds Coming October 17

Posted by at 9:56 am on July 6, 2011

Former Oasis guitarist/songwriter Noel Gallagher unveiled plans on Wednesday for his first solo album, telling reporters that he would release his debut solo disc, “Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds,” on Oct. 17 and a second album in 2012.

The choice of which song he would release as a single had yet to be decided.
Asked to compare the music on the new album with that of Oasis, arguably Britain’s biggest band of the 1990s with total album sales estimated at around 70 million, he replied:

“The main difference is there’s no guitar solos (on the new record). There’s a guitar solo on two tracks and one of them I didn’t play. You’ll like it. You’ll think it’s brilliant.

“The songs are not Oasis songs. It’s not stadium rock. There’s an electric kettle in there, for crying out loud. When I write a song I’m not thinking … I have to do something different because of what I’ve done in the past.

“The first track you are going to hear doesn’t sound like anything I’ve ever done before. That’s not a conscious thing it’s just the way the songs were written.”

Gallagher said he would tour with the new music before its release, sticking to relatively small venues.
