Oasis are to start work on their seventh studio album on July 3.

Guitarist Noel Gallagher has named the date when the band will be recording a follow-up to 2005's ’Don’t Believe The Truth’.

"The songs are written... but don't hold your breath because the last album took three-and-half-years and three goes,” he told BBC News. “It would be great if it was done by the end of the year and we could get out on the road by next summer, but that's insane wishful thinking."

Previously the guitarist has told NME.COM that this album will be more experimental than Oasis' more recent efforts.

"For the next record I really fancy doing, you know, a record where we just completely throw the kitchen sink at it," Gallagher declared. "We haven’t done that since ‘Be Here Now’ (in 1997)... get like a 100 piece orchestra and choirs and all that.

"I think since ‘Standing on the Shoulders of Giants’ (2000) we’ve been trying to prove a point of just bass, drums, guitar and vocals and nothing fancy. But I kind of fancy, like, making an absolutely fucking colossal album. You know? Like literally two orchestras, stuff like that."
