Noel Gallagher: ‘My solo songs would never have made it onto an Oasis record’

Star also compares Amorphous Androgynous side project with Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon'

Noel Gallagher has admitted that songs on his forthcoming debut solo album would never have made it onto an Oasis record.

The former guitarist claims that tracks on ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ were far too soft to make it onto any album by his former band.

He told Spin magazine:

These songs never would have ended up on an Oasis record. I directed everything that went on in that band but Oasis were a stadium rock band so I wrote stadium rock music.

Gallagher added: “Now it’s different. Doing the new solo album was fucking great. It was serene. I could take it at my own pace.”

The former Oasis man also revealed further details about his second album featuring Amorphous Androgynous. “It sounds a bit like Pink Floyd‘s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’. The sound is similar to ‘High Flying Birds’, but more psychedelic and tripped out. It’s not an electronic project. People are jumping to that conclusion because Amorphous Androgynous used to be an electronic outfit.”

Gallagher said he is hoping to release the album next summer or winter. His debut solo album ‘Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ will be released on October 17.
