Songwriter says he was going for the feel of a classic gig

Noel Gallagher has explained the reasons behind the running order of Oasis‘ forthcoming singles collection album ‘Time Flies’.

In an exclusive new video interview about his time in the band – which you can view on the right of your screen now – the guitarist explained his choices.

“I tried to look at it like a gig – albeit a very fucking long one,” he said. “‘Supersonic’ seems like a great opener, and ‘Falling Down’ seems like a great last song in the set.”

Gallagher added: “You could do it chronologically, but then all the real iconic stuff is at the front.”

A total of 23 new videos featuring Gallagher talking about the compilation will be released online in the coming weeks. See Oasisinet.com for more information.

‘Time Flies’ is released on June 14. The cover artwork is a shot of one of Oasis’ Knebworth gigs in 1996.
