We’ve heard plenty about Liam Gallagher’s upcoming solo debut – but in 2017 older brother Noel is also shaping up to release his third solo record. Here’s what we know so far about ‘Chasing Yesterday’s follow-up.
When is Noel Gallagher’s new album going to be released?
During an appearance on his pal Russell Brand’s radio show in April, Noel let slip that the album is tentatively being scheduled for a November 2017 release. He stopped short of any more details, but confirmed that there will be a track called ‘Instrumental Number Three’.
What can we expect from Noel Gallagher’s new album?
Speaking to NME in April 2016, Noel revealed that for his third solo record he’ll be mixing things up in the creative process. “I am doing something different this time, to amuse myself – I am writing in the studio for the first time. As a rule I’ve not allowed myself to go in with any completed songs, so I am writing in there, it’s happening all around me during the day.”
“Usually I’ll go in, play a song, record an acoustic version of it and then I’ll think of something and we’ll head toward it. Everything we do is a forward motion toward that point. When you’re writing in the studio you don’t know where you’re going, so the flavour of it all can constantly shift. It’s a bit chaotic but the end results are great so far.”
While his first solo album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ didn’t deviate massively from the Oasis sound, follow-up ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was lauded for its adoption of more psychedelic elements – something which many hoped he would carry into whatever music he makes next.
