Noel Gallagher: 'Amorphous Androgynous collaboration is fucking far out'

Ex-Oasis man says his second solo album even features funk and krautrock

Video: Noel Gallagher Goes Solo - Full Press Conference

Noel Gallagher has admitted that his second solo album, which is due for release next summer, is "fucking far out".

The album, which doesn't have a title as yet, is a collaboration with psychedelic collective Amorphous Androgynous and the ex-Oasis man has said that it takes in genres that he would have stayed well clear of in his days with his former band.

Speaking at a press conference to launch his solo career yesterday (July 6), he said of the album: "It’s fucking far out. It’s got like 18 tracks on it, some of it's krautrock, some of it's soul, some of it's funk and that's just the first song."



Gallagher added that he would not be playing any songs from the album on his October tour, choosing instead to focus on material from his first solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' and on Oasis songs.

He said of playing his second solo album live: "The second album's not going to come out until as I understand it next summer anyway and I stress again that it's far out. I don’t really want to put the kids through it at the moment."

The guitarist's first solo album will be released on October 17 – he tours the UK and Ireland a week later.
