Noel Gallagher has announced full details of his new solo debut album 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' at a London press conference.

The ex-Oasis guitarist said his new record will be released on his own label Sour Mash Records on October 17 and will be followed up by a second collaboration LP in 2012 with Amorphous Androgynous.

The LP, his first material since Oasis split in August 2009, was recorded in London and completed in Los Angeles during 2010 and the first half of this year. It features 10 new songs and was produced by Gallagher and Dave Sardy.




Musicians appearing on the records include ex-Oasis keyboard player Mike Rowe, The Lemon Trees' Jeremy Stacey and American percussionist Lenny Castro, best known for playing on records by The Rolling Stones, Stevie Wonder and Elton John.

The album also includes guest appearances from the Crouch End Festival Chorus, who Oasis and Gallagher have performed with before, and The Wired Strings.

Gallagher is due to tour in the autumn but no further details have been announced yet. He launched his own official website, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and MySpace ahead of the press conference. No material has been posted up on any site so far.

The full tracklisting for 'Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' is as follows:

'Everybody's On The Run'
'Dream On'
'If I Had A Gun'
'The Death Of You And Me'
'(I Wanna Live In A Dream In My) Record Machine'
'AKA...What A Life!'
'Soldier Boys And Jesus Freaks'
'AKA....Broken Arrow'
'(Stranded On) The Wrong Beach'
'Stop The Clocks'


Rumours surfaced earlier this year that the first single from the record will be the 'The Death Of You And Me'.

Although the track does feature on the record, it is yet to be confirmed as the album's official first single.
