Noel Gallagher responds to suggestions he “coordinated” album release with Liam for “publicity”

Noel is about to release new High Flying Birds album 'Who Built The Moon?'

Noel Gallagher has denied that he and brother Liam both released their new albums around the same time to heighten publicity.

Ex-Oasis guitarist Noel releases his new High Flying Birds album ‘Who Built The Moon?’ on Friday (November 24). Read the NME review here.

Noel’s younger sibling Liam, meanwhile, released his solo debut ‘As You Were’ just last month in October. It has been named one of NME‘s top 10 albums of 2017.


In a new interview with Vulture, Noel was asked whether he “coordinated” his album release date with Liam for “publicity” or whether it was simply “lucky timing”.

Noel replied: “It’s slightly annoying. My shit is not reacting [to Liam’s album]. It’s not reactionary on that level to anybody’s. When your record’s ready, it goes, and that’s the end of it, and if it’s near to the other fellow’s, then that’s it.”

“I don’t give a fuck whether he puts his album out the same day as mine,” Noel added. “I will thank him for promoting my record, though, and it’s not even out yet.”

Meanwhile, Noel made headlines earlier this week when he slammed his brother Liam as ‘the village idiot’ and claimed that he is ‘not well‘, after their feud surrounding the ‘We Are Manchester’ benefit concert.

Asked about Liam’s alleged ‘We Are Manchester’ “PR stunt” comments, Noel replied: “I will say this — and this is all I will say about it. I don’t think that he [Liam] is well. I think it says more about him than it does about anything else. I honestly don’t think he is well.”
