David Bowie has "another album in the pipeline", according to Noel Gallagher.

The former Oasis man hinted that the legendary singer has enough leftover material from his new album 'The Next Day' for another record. He made the revelation during an interview with Absolute Radio for 'Bowie Part 3 – Let’s Dance To The Next Day (1980-2013)', which is to be broadcast tonight (April 21) at 7pm.

He said:

According to people I've spoken to, there’s another album in the pipeline. There was, like, 29 songs or something.


However, Gallagher could not say when the new album would be released and admitted that it could be another 10 years before the record sees the light of day. "I don't know what’s next for Bowie. He could disappear for another 10 years or there could be another album," he said. "He might do the greatest tour of all time or he might never gig again. Who knows?"

Praising the singer, he added: "I've got to say I was properly staggered about how good (the album) actually was. I don't believe for a second that he’s thrown those songs together in two years. It sounds like a record that has been in the making for 10 years. And if it is, I admire him even more. I genuinely put Bowie up there with some of the greatest there has ever been, with Elvis, John Lennon…he's in that league."

NME's special collectors' magazine on David Bowie is out now and includes the complete Bowie story, iconic and rare photographs, every era and character analysed plus classic NME interviews with Bowie himself.
