Noel Gallagher has confessed that he's nervous about releasing his second solo album.

The former Oasis chief released his first individual LP 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'
on October 17, and saw the album enter the UK charts at Number One after it clocked up sales of over 120,000 in its first week of release (October 23).

But the guitarist, who confirmed in a press conference earlier this year that he had also recorded an album with Amorphous Androgynous that would be released in 2012, told the Daily Star that he wished he'd never revealed details about the LP.

He said:

A lot of people are looking forward to it, which I'm a bit nervous about. They're building it up in their own minds, thinking it's going to be something it might not be when they hear it.



Gallagher, who recently indicated that he would be keen to collaborate with U2 or Coldplay due to the size of their record sales, added: "It's fucking good, but I probably shouldn't have announced it. But I just thought, 'It's finished, so fuck it, here's what I've been working on.'"

The star also admitted that he found it impossible to say "no comment" to journalists, adding: "I'm just cursed with an absolutely endless stream of one-liners. I'm sorry about that.

"People say it's the way I talk in interviews that makes people interested. But they just mean I'm honest. 'Oh, he's got a way with honesty, that lad…' How depressing is that?"

Noel Gallagher is currently in the middle of his debut UK and Ireland solo tour, and is due to play the The Roundhouse tonight (31).

He has also announced a UK and Ireland arena tour for next year, which is due to kick off at the Manchester MEN Arena on Feburary 13 before visiting Belfast, Dublin, Newcastle, Glasgow, London and Birmingham.
