Noel Gallagher has revealed that he would like to work again with The Chemical Brothers.

The Oasis guitarist lent his vocals to the dance duo’s number one 1996 single ‘Setting Sun’, as well as the 1999 Top Ten single 'Let Forever Be'.

Despite the aborted sessions with Death In Vegas for ‘Don’t Believe The Truth’ in early 2004, the experience has not put Gallagher off moving back into the dance arena, he told XFM Manchester.

“We kind of thought it’s time to step outside of our own studio and go and try something a bit different, and it’s well documented that we didn’t have the right songs to go and tackle the project,” he explained.

“We thought it was going to be great, we got in there and turned the tapes on and it was a little bit shit,” he added. “But I would have loved to have worked more with the Chemicals, still would actually. I still think ‘Setting Sun’ to this day is one of the best things I’ve ever done, much to Liam’s disappointment.”

Gallagher has also admitted that Oasis’ career has partly been due to luck.

He explained: “There’re lots of tiny little things that have to fall into place, and there’s kind of too many to mention, but timing is probably the best one. I think if we’d have put our first album out three or four years either side of when it come out we’d be talking about a completely different story here.

“We just kind of rode the crest of a wave really, I would say its fifty-fifty luck and hard graft.”

The guitarist has also expressed his desire to move back to Manchester, though is unsure as to whether it would be permanent.

“I should have done it maybe five or six years ago, but my daughter’s all grown up now and all that,” Gallagher said. “But I’d definitely like to go back there to write at some point because I think some of the best stuff I ever wrote was back in town. Whether I could live there or not, I don’t know anymore. I probably could actually.”
