OASIS have begun work on their new album and are looking to release it in August, with a possible single to precede it in June, NME.COM can reveal.

The group started the preliminary recording of the album at Noel Gallagher’s home studio in Buckinghamshire last week.

Noel recently told NME.COM they would record seven songs before hitting the road with the Black Crowes on the ‘Brotherly Love Tour’ of the US in May.
