Notts: Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds confirm Arena date for March
The former Oasis man releases his second album, Chasing Yesterday, on 2nd March.
And he confirmed that he will play in Nottingham as aprt of the tour to promote the album on 6th March.
Chasing Yesterday is the follow-up to the band’s double-platinum emponymously-titled debut whihc siold more than 700,000 copies in the UK alone.
It marks a new chapter and sound for band and it’s the first album to be produced as well as written by Noel, something he found presented a new challenge.
It’s not that I’ve ever had people telling me what to write or what direction to go in, but managing sessions from one end of the week to the other proved extremely difficult,” he said.
“I had all these people looking at me and saying ‘what are we doing today?’”
“I was making the whole thing up as I went along.”
The first single from the album, In The Heat of t he Moment, is out on 17th November, while the album’s closing track, Ballad of the Mighty, features Johnny Marr.
“I called him and asked if I could send him the rough mix,” recalled Noel.
“He said ‘no, I don’t want to hear it. I’m just going to react to it on the day.’”
“He didn’t even want any pointers.
“He just arrived with two guitars and a bag of effects pedals.”
“And I have to say, he’s unbelievable and Mighty is one of the best songs I’ve ever written.”
