We are first to give you details of tracks the errant Oasis star has recorded in his home studio...
nme.com has heard three new Noel Gallagher tunes which could end up on his solo album.
Titled ‘Getting Older’, ‘Solve My Mystery (Revolution Song)’ and ‘Let That Be Loved’, the songs were recorded by Noel in his home studio around about the time that he was making ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants’.
The tracks are all mid-paced, typically epic Gallagher ballads but only one track, ‘Getting Older’, sounds like it has been fully produced.
The track ‘Let That Be Loved’ is thought to have been written by Noel for possible inclusion on a future Oasis album.
Of what nme.com has heard, it seems that Noel‘s style is more latter -day Oasis – more ‘Sunday Morning Call’ than ‘Cigarettes And Alcohol’.
Noel has also recorded another track, entitled ‘I Gotta Get It Back’, which nme.com has yet to hear.
For the full story on the Noel Gallagher solo material, including lyrics to the new songs, see this week’s NME, out in London today (July 4) and nationwide from tomorrow morning (July 5).
Anticipation is rising for Noel‘s return to the Oasis camp – when the band play Dublin Landsdowne Road on July 8, with support from Supergrass.
nme.com can also reveal Doves are to support Oasis for their shows at London Wembley Stadium on July 21-22 and Edinburgh Murrayfield Stadium (29). Doves also appear at this weekend’s T In The Park Festival at Balado, near Kinross, and the Reading and Leeds Carling Weekend Festivals.
