Oasis: ‘Nearly named album after Geri Halliwell song’

Noel Gallagher reveals 'Spicy' alternative title for 'Dig Out Your Soul'

Noel Gallagher has admitted he nearly named his album after a Geri Halliwell song – until his girlfriend pointed it out.

‘Dig Out Your Soul’, out on October 6, was nearly called ‘Bag It Up’, the star explained.

“The missus goes ‘Bag It Up’? isn’t that a song by Geri Halliwell. I was like: ‘You’ve ruined my entire fucking year!’,” he told Mojo.

The song in question was a UK Number One single in March 2000.

‘Dig Out Your Soul’ is due out on October 6, preceded by the single ‘The Shock Of the Lightning’ on September 29.
