Noel Gallagher's first studio solo album since the demise of Oasis in 2009 -- Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds -- will be released in the United States on Tuesday, November 8, via Sour Mash/Mercury Records. And while several tracks are already available in the US, including "The Death of You and Me," "The Good Rebel" and "If I Had a Gun...," we're proud to bring you the exclusive premiere of a new song, "Soldier Boys and Jesus Freaks." Check out the player below to have a listen.
Noel Gallagher might have joined his brother’s band, Oasis. But he also became its creative force. Noel’s gift for writing hit songs put Oasis on the map in the early '90s. Their 1995 album, What’s The Story (Morning Glory), which featured the hits “Wonderwall” and “Don’t Look Back In Anger,” sold more than 14 million copies worldwide and propelled the band to international stardom.
In support of his upcoming debut solo album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, the elder Gallagher brother has announced a limited -- and we mean limited -- number of North American tour dates for this November.
While Noel may certainly seem like the busier Gallagher brother right now -- preparing to release his debut solo album in November, with another collaborative album to follow in early 2012 -- Liam wants everyone to know that he and the rest of Noel's ex-bandmates in Beady Eye aren't going away anytime soon.
Last night, GuitarWorld.com's Josh Hart and I attended a listening session for Noel Gallagher's upcoming post-Oasis solo album, Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, which comes out November 8 on Sour Mash Records.
Anyone who is familiar with British rock knows all too well the antics of the Gallagher brothers, Liam and Noel. Their love/hate relationship made for great music and press during Oasis' 18-year run. But in August 2009, the brothers called it quits, and Beady Eye was born. Their debut album, Different Gear, Still Speeding, was released in February.
