Former Oasis man will release a B-Sides compilation next month

Noel Gallagher is set to release a new EP next month, which is titled ‘Songs From The Great White North’.

The EP, which contains four tracks in total, will be released on 12′ vinyl to celebrate this year’s Record Store Day, which happens on April 21.

The EP is made up of the former Oasis‘ man’s recent B-sides and includes his recent collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous ‘Shoot A Hole Into The Sun’ as well as previous offerings ‘The Good Rebel’, ‘Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me’ and ‘I’d Pick You Everytime’.

Speaking about the release and why he wanted to celebrate Record Store Day, Gallagher said: “Record shops are as important as the records themselves”.

Gallagher joins the likes of Arctic Monkeys, Mastodon, Frank Turner and Arcade Fire in releasing one-off vinyl records to celebrate this year’s Record Store Day.

The tracklisting for ‘Songs From The Great White North’ is as follows:

‘The Good Rebel’
‘Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me’
‘I’d Pick You Everytime’
‘Shoot A Hole Into The Sun’

In the new issue of NME, which is on UK newsstands or available digitally now, Gallagher explains why Manchester City footballer Mario Balotelli is his personal hero. Previously, he told NME that he should receive his own Godlike Genius award – the same gong Noel picked up at the NME Awards last month (February 29).
