Noel Gallagher is auctioning off a signed 'High Flying Birds' gold disc for Sport Relief.

'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' was the former Oasis man's first solo album and was released in 2011. The gold disc will be signed by Gallagher with a personal message for the auction's winner. The auction is taking place on behalf of the Give It Up fund, which was founded by Russell Brand in order to help develop abstinence based community support for people following drug and alcohol treatment. The Give It Up fund is backed by the Sport Relief campaign.

The auction comes to an end on March 2. For more information, visit eBay.

Meanwhile, Noel Gallagher is currently recording a new album which has the spirit of Oasis' debut album, according to Gallagher's long-term associate Mark Coyle. Coyle, who co-produced Oasis' debut album 'Definitely Maybe', told NME he heard demos for Gallagher's new album earlier this month following recording sessions Gallagher made in New York.

"Noel's new album is fucking great," said Coyle."It reminds me in some respects of the spirit of 'Definitely Maybe', because it's so obviously exciting. That boy is from a different planet, and even the fans won't believe how utterly amazing it is."

Coyle talks about the 20th anniversary edition of 'Definitely Maybe' in the new issue of NME, which is on newsstands now and available digitally. He spent six months going through demos and live recordings for the extra tracks on the anniversary release's Special Edition.

This week it was announced that Oasis's classic 1994 debut album 'Definitely Maybe' will be reissued to mark its 20th anniversary in May.
