Beady Eye have entered to the studio to work on their second album.

According to an announcement on the band's website, Beady Eye today (November 12) started working with producer Dave Sitek, best known as a member of TV On The Radio and closely associated with the New York scene of the 2000s. His credits include 'It's Blitz!' by Yeah Yeah Yeahs and 'Anywhere I Lay My Head' by Scarlett Johansson.

The official statement reads: "Beady Eye have returned to the studio to start on the follow up to their 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' debut album released last year. Liam, Gem, Andy and Chris started sessions today with producer Dave Sitek... Release date is yet to be confirmed but the as yet untitled album will come out in 2013."

In September, Beady Eye guitarist Andy Bell said that an Oasis reunion "probably should happen at some point".

Speaking to Drowned In Sound, the band's former bass player said that he'd 'love' to see an Oasis reunion happen, commenting: "I'd love it to happen. I think that life's too short for it not to happen. But, in reality, do I see it happening? At this point, no I don't. The matter rests entirely with the two brothers. It probably should happen at some point but if they can't make it happen, no one should force them to."
