Noel Gallagher has said that he would love to be part of a supergroup in the future.

The guitarist, who is currently promoting his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds', has said that he really fancies the idea of fronting a group made up of indie superstars.

Specifically, Noel has said he would like the line-up to consist of himself, former Smiths and Cribs guitarist Johnny Marr, Paul Weller and current Primal Scream and former Stone Roses bassist Mani.

Gallagher added that he would make sure his group had nothing in common with Mick Jagger's new outfit SuperHeavy which features the likes of Joss Stone and Damian Marley, branding the group "fucking ridiculous".

He told The Quietus:

I’d still love to do that [a supergroup] as long as it wasn’t like SuperHeavy. Fucking ridiculous. You know, me, Johnny Marr, Mani and Weller, that would be great.

Gallagher released the new video for his single 'AKA…What A Life!' yesterday, which features a starring role for actor and friend Russell Brand. You can watch it below.

Gallagher's debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' will be released on October 17.
