Oasis will enter London’s Abbey Road studios on November 5 to record their seventh album. They have already completed work on two songs set for the album, and have demoed the rest.

Speaking to BBC 6Music, Noel Gallagher revealed that the band already began initial recording at the studio six weeks ago, and plan to mix the album after a Christmas break.

“We start in Abbey Road a week on Monday [November 5],” he said. “Then we'll probably work through a couple of months there, have Christmas off, then go and mix it and see where we're at.

“We all write separately, but for some reason all the songs sound like they've got a common thread. We've been focusing round the grooves more this time."

He added: "The last album ['Don't Believe The Truth'] was quite 'songy', if that makes any sense – it was quite a British, retro, ‘60s sounding album. This [new album] is focusing round the grooves more.”

Gallagher went on to explain that he’d been having difficulty coming up with lyrical inspiration.

“I've literally got nothing left to write about,” he said. “I've written about being a youth, and I've written about being a rock star, and I've written about living life in the big city.”
