Noel Gallagher: 'The charts are insane' - video

Ex-Oasis man admits he doesn't understand staggered release dates

Video: Noel Gallagher : 'The Charts Are Insane'

Noel Gallagher has branded the charts "insane" in the interview clip which can be seen above.

Speaking to NME, the singer said that he didn't understand why downloads were released at different times to the physical editions of singles.

Referencing his recent track 'AKA What A Life' the former Oasis man said: "It's fucked now. Some of us are old enough to remember Top Of The Pops and The Chart Show.



"If you headlined Top Of The Pops you were fucking number one and the world was alright and everyone knew their place.

"The charts are insane at the moment, the way people sell music is insane. '...What A Life' is out, but it's not actually out. You can buy it but you can't buy it. It's at Number 20 in the charts but it's not actually been released. I don't understand why. (Someone told me) 'We release it two weeks after its been released now'. Well, who is 'we'? And why do 'we' do that? It doesn't make any sense to me."

The singer will release his debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' on October 17th.
