Noel Gallagher returning to studio to make his fifth solo album

Noel Gallagher is set to return to the studio to make his next solo album.

The former Oasis frontman, 56, narrowly missed the No1 spot with his fourth High Flying Birds record ‘Council Skies’ in June, but will be hoping to land the top spot with his latest effort, which he says he’s going to start recording the New Year after banking enough tunes to fill two albums.

He was quoted in The Sun saying: “I’ve had to stop writing because I need to get these songs recorded and get them out there so I can write some more.

“In the pandemic there was nothing to do all day so I just wrote songs. There’s another two albums-worth of material there.

“I think I’m going to be back in the studio in January, so we’ll see where it goes from there.”

Noel also said he was still learning about the impact of his anthems on audiences, adding: “I wouldn’t still be doing it after 30 years if I didn’t love it.

“You tend to find out more about the songs when you play them live than when you're just listening to them at home. It’s a special thing.
