Noel Gallagher's second solo single 'AKA…What A Life!' is now streaming online in full, scroll down to the bottom to the page and click to listen to it.

The track will be released formally on Sunday (September 11) and will be accompanied by a brand new B-side 'Let The Lord Shine A Light On Me'.

The former Oasis guitarist has described 'AKA…What A Life!' as a "dance track" in interviews and it is certainly a departure from his more traditional guitar rock as it is built around a repetitive piano groove and chugging bassline.

Gallagher's debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' will be released on October 17, with previous single 'The Death Of You And Me' and 'If I Had A Gun', which was made available online last week, both set to feature in the tracklisting.

'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' features a number of tracks that were written during his years as a member of Oasis and will be released through Gallagher's own Sour Mash Records.

The LP was recorded over the past year in London and Los Angeles with producer Dave Sardy.

A second album, recorded with psychedelic collective Amorphous Androgynous, is due to come out sometime in 2012.
