Liam Gallagher reportedly lets the cat out of the bag...

OASIS‘ forthcoming album is rumoured to be called ‘HEATHEN CHEMISTRY’.

The group have been working on their new record for much of the last 12 months. Vocalist Liam Gallagher reportedly told the music website www.rocksbackpages.com that the longplayer is likely to carry that title, and be released in March 2002.

A UK spokesperson for the group is currently unavailable to confirm the album’s title, but said new material was unlikely to be released until late spring.

Noel Gallagher recently pulled the release of a new single scheduled for last month, because he thought it simply “wasn’t good enough”.

He said: “We had it mixed and the artwork done and everything, I’ve still got the finished version in front of me now, I just thought it wasn’t really good enough. We decided to go back to the drawing board. It was a good vibe, but it just needed more work. It was one verse and one chorus repeated over and over again, much in the same vein as ‘Roll With It’.”

Liam is currently adding vocals to the record.
