Listen to a Remix of Noel Gallagher’s ‘The Right Stuff’ by Massive Attack’s 3D
Earlier this year, Noel Gallagher dropped Chasing Yesterday, his sophomore solo album with the High Flying Birds. Now, one of the album’s songs, “The Right Stuff,” has been entirely reimagined by Massive Attack’s Robert Del Naja.
Del Naja (aka 3D) has served up two remixes of the Chasing Yesterday cut, both of which will be released as a 12” single later this month. Take a listen to 3D’s first version now over on Fact. “It was a good opportunity to take a great song, slow it right down, remove the guitars and then scratch the clarinet backwards,” 3D said.
Gallagher noted that his partnership with 3D has been in the works for nearly 20 years, as the Massive Attack artist was originally supposed to remix Oasis’ classic (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? song, “Cast No Shadow.”
“I remember being at the Brits in 1995 and D offering to do a Massive Attack remix of ‘Cast No Shadow,’” Gallagher said. “The idea was never followed through and it’s something I’ve regretted ever since. It’s nice to finally scratch the itch somewhat.”
The limited-edition single, Battle Box 004: The High Flying Birds in 3D, will land in stores on July 31 via 3D’s own Battle Box label. You can pre-order it now over on the Vinyl Factory.
A follow-up to Chasing Yesterday may arrive sooner rather than later, as Gallagher recently revealed that he's already hard at work on his third solo effort. “I’m already a bit of the way into my next record,” he said in an interview. “As for what it will eventually say on the cover though remains to be seen.”
