Watch Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds’ Video for ‘Ballad of the Mighty I’
Former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has a knack for making headlines with his heavy-weighted opinions, almost as much as Morrissey and Billy Corgan combined (just kidding, that would be nearly impossible).
During an Oasis DVD commentary, he formally exclaimed his disdain for music videos by simply stating, "I f--king hate videos." Now he's released a new video for the High Flying Birds' 'Ballad Of The Mighty I,' but don't worry; it draws attention to the displeasurable act of actually making a music video. You can watch it below.
The video, which is for one of Gallagher's self-proclaimed "best songs ever written," features a very difficult, self-involved director forcing the singer to walk along what appears to be a Hackney canal. After a few non-choice circumstances, Gallagher storms off set at the end of the very first take.
'Ballad of the Mighty I,' which is Gallagher's long-awaited collaboration with Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr, will be available for download tomorrow; the full album, 'Chasing Yesterday,' will hit the streets on March 2.
