Last month Gallagher shared the official video for the High Flying Birds song ‘Wandering Star’. The festive clip features This Is England and The Irishman star Stephen Graham, while the song itself is part of the band’s upcoming EP ‘Blue Moon Rising’.

He also recently revealed that he’d be up for becoming a guitarist in The Smiths if the Manchester icons were to ever reunite.

Gallagher is due to release ‘Blue Moon Rising’, the final of three EPs released between June 2019 and March 2020.

‘Black Star Dancing’ EP and ‘This Is the Place’ EP hit shelves on June 14, 2019 and September 27, 2019, respectively.
