Oasis have revealed that their long awaited new single will be ‘THE HINDU TIMES’. It is released on April 15.

‘The Hindu Times’ was debuted during last year’s 10th anniversary Noise & Confusion tour. It got another airing at the recent charity gig at London’s Royal Albert Hall and the warm-up date at Watford Coliseum.

The single will be Oasis’ first since ‘Sunday Morning Call’, almost two years previously. As NME.COM revealed two weeks ago, Oasis’ fifth album is finished and will be released in July. There are also plans for a world tour around the release of the album, and Oasis are already confirmed to headline Coachella Festival in Palm Springs, California on April 28.

‘The Hindu Times’ is an upbeat rock song, featuring some of Noel Gallagher’s most direct and defiant sounding lyrics since Oasis‘ debut album ‘Definitely Maybe’. The song includes the lines ‘I get up when I’m down/ I can’t swim but my soul won’t drown/ I do believe I’ve got flare/ I got speed and I walk on air.’ The chorus is: ‘Cos God give me a soul/ In your rock ‘n’ roll band/ I can get so high I just can’t feel it.’

Oasis have yet to confirm the album’s title, despite earlier reports that it would be called ‘Heathen Chemistry’. Other songs set for inclusion on the album include ‘Hung In A Bad Place’, which Oasis played at their recent gigs, as well as ‘Better Man’ and ‘Force Of Nature’ which they recorded for a German TV show in Berlin on February 10.

Oasis fans can get a preview of ‘Force Of Nature’, as a version sung by Noel features on the 2000 British gangster movie ‘Love, Honour & Obey’.
