Oasis guitarist says the follow up to 'Dig Out Your Soul' is well underway

Noel Gallagher says he has already written and demoed the next Oasis album.

Speaking to Detroit News, Gallagher revealed that preparation for the follow-up to the 2008’s ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ is well under way.

He confirmed: “It’s already done. It’s already written. It’s already demoed.”

However, Gallagher said he was unsure when the album would come out, hinting that he would release a solo album ahead of new Oasis material.

“I’m gonna take a bit of time off after this [the ‘Dig Out Your Soul’ tour]. I think I might do something for myself, maybe,” he said.

The guitarist also let slip how much he wants to hear Guns N’ Roses‘Chinese Democracy’, despite the negative reviews the album has garnered.

“I’ve not heard it. I’ve read the reviews, and judging from the reviews I know I’m gonna fucking love it,” Gallagher said.

“I love preposterous records, and anything that took 17 years [to make] is obviously fucking ludicrous. I’m dying to hear it. I already know I’m going to like it.”
