Noel Gallagher posted a photo from inside the recording studio earlier today (May 29), his 47th birthday.

The picture, which you can see below, was tweeted from the official Noel Gallagher account, which is maintained by his label Sour Mash Records.




Gallagher is currently working on his second solo album, the follow-up to 2011's 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds'. According to his long-term associate Mark Coyle the album has the spirit of Oasis' debut. Coyle, who co-produced 'Definitely Maybe', told NME he heard demos for Gallagher's new album back in February, following recording sessions 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, a friend of Gallagher’s since they were both in Inspiral Carpets' road crew in the early '90s, said Gallagher had written between 50 to 60 songs for the new album. "He’s not exactly struggling for an 11th song to complete the album," said Coyle. "It's pouring out of him and he’s currently whittling it all down into an album. The new record will be seismic. It's so explosive that, on the day it comes out, Virgin Trains won’t be able to cope with all the people trying to flee the chaos."
