Guitarist plans first 'separate' release to follow band's world tour
“I don’t specifically put songs aside. There are songs that have just fallen by the wayside that are still great but have missed their moment. Like ‘Stop The Clocks’ for instance,” he said. “That needs to come out soon. At the end of this tour, I’d like everyone to do something separately. I think it would be interesting for our fans.”
He added he brother, frontman Liam Gallagher, should consider doing his own solo stuff too.
“I also think because we’ve ended up with this album at a place where we were working to for the last five years. It’s kind of like, ‘What do we do next?’,” explained Noel. “Liam‘s always the first person to start rushing things. I think if he wants to get back in the saddle that quick, he should do it for himself. He’s got tonnes and tonnes of songs.”
Noel also revealed that he could be a secret sleepwalker.
“I woke up one morning on a different floor of my house than the one I went to bed in,” declares Noel. “I wasn’t drunk and I hadn’t been out the night before. I can’t remember getting there. [My girlfriend] Sarah came down and she said, ‘Maybe you’ve started sleepwalking’. I was like, ‘If I started sleepwalking at 41, life just keeps getting better and better. This is incredible’. Where would you end up? You could end up anywhere. I haven’t done it since though.”
