Noel Gallagher's second solo single 'AKA…What A Life!' was previewed in a TV advert for car manufacturer Vauxhall last night (September 2) - scroll down and click below to hear it.

As mentioned by Gallagher in previous interviews, the track has more of a dancey feel than his debut solo single 'The Death Of You And Me' and is built around a driving piano line.

The single, which is due to be released on September 11, is the third track to emerge from the guitarist's debut solo album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds', which is out on October 17.

Earlier this week, another new song from the record, 'If I Had A Gun', was posted online - you can also hear this by scrolling down and clicking below.

The album, which features a number of tracks that were written during his years as a member of Oasis, will be released through Gallagher's own Sour Mash Records. The LP was recorded over the past year in London and Los Angeles with producer Dave Sardy.

A second album, recorded with psychedelic collective Amorphous Androgynous, is due to come out sometime in 2012.
