OASIS’ MAY DAY!

Noel Gallagher spills the beans...

NOEL GALLAGHER has revealed the release date of the new OASIS album.

Talking last night (September 22) on new Sky One show Tim Lovejoy And The Allstars, Noel revealed that the band have set themselves a deadline of May 26 next year to release the long-overdue album.

He said: “May 26. We’ve got a release date now, which is why it’s been meandering for a bit because we’ve not had a date to work to because we’re extremely successful. So they just say ‘Alright, finish when you finish’ – but it’s kind of been rambling on and not working too hard on it but now we have to have it finished by May 26.”

Following their critically-mauled headline show at Glastonbury, Oasis scrapped sessions intended for the follow-up to ‘Heathen Chemistry’, which included a period recording with The Ordinary Boys.

Noel also revealed last night that brother Liam is becoming ever more prolific as a songwriter. “He’s written a few. It’s a pity they’re not going to make it onto the album. We’ve demoed 66 songs and he’s written a fair few. Some of them are really good but he’s going to have to do a solo tour ‘cause I’m not doing a triple album.”

Also appearing on the show were the [/a], who made their first television appearance for eight years, since being banned from Channel 4. Other guests included footballer Stan Collymore and live bands [a] and The Rakes.
