Published Sep 25, 2017Between dodging verbal bullets from his younger brother, Noel Gallagher managed to finish work on the next record from his High Flying Birds project and the LP details have finally been revealed.
Titled Who Built the Moon?, it will arrive on November 24 via Sour Mash and can be pre-ordered here. It marks the follow-up to 2015's Chasing Yesterday.
The new album was recorded with producer David Holmes in London and Belfast, and it features a few fellow British rock icons. Paul Weller plays organ on "Holy Mountain," while Johnny Marr contributes guitar and harmonica on "If Love Is the Law."
One guy who won't be appearing on the album is Noel's brother and former Oasis bandmate Liam Gallagher. The younger bruv has weighed in with his own thoughts about Noel's upcoming foray into psychedelia. See what he had to say below.
