Noel Gallagher: ‘I’ve not started my solo album yet’

Former Oasis man scuppers rumours that he'd been in the studio

Noel Gallagher has claimed that he has not yet started work in his debut solo album.

The former Oasis guitarist had been rumoured to have been recording his album already, with solo artist Miles Kane saying he’d played guitar on it.

But, speaking to radio station Talksport today (February 9), Gallagher claimed he hadn’t even started the project yet – or at least full recording sessions.

“I am not recording new stuff, not just yet,” he said. “It’ll be out when it’s finished I guess. Well, I’ve not even started it, so I don’t know.”

He added, rather logically following his previous statement, that it was unlikely that the album would emerge in the near future. “I’d have thought probably if anything comes out it’ll be later rather than sooner,” he said.

He also told the station that he had secured the rights to the domain name, over a year ago, contrary to recent tabloid reports.
