“It was one of the first things David and I did on the first week of working together,” said Noel of the song. “I knew instantly that it was going to be the first single. There’s so much joy in it. Until the day I die, it will be one of my favourite pieces of music that I’ve ever written. It sounds great live. My kids love it, my friends’ kids all love it and I am sure ‘the kids’ will love it.”
The track is a jaunty and vibrant, horn-driven, arena-ready number – with elements of The Vaccines latter day work to its sound.
Meanwhile this weekend saw Noel and brother Liam Gallagher come to blows in the press. Noel said that Liam ‘needs to see a psychiatrist‘, before he hit back claiming that he has text message proof of him being asked and turning down the opportunity to perform at the ‘One Love Manchester’ concert.
‘Who Built The Moon?’ will be released on Friday November 24, and can be pre-ordered here.
