Noel Gallagher Announces New High Flying Birds Album ‘Who Built the Moon?’
The follow-up to Gallagher's 2015 effort, Chasing Yesterdays, the latest High Flying Birds outing is set to arrive in stores Nov. 24. Available to pre-order now, the album features guest appearances by Paul Weller and Johnny Marr. Who Built the Moon? arrives in the midst of a flurry of Oasis-related activity. Last year, fans were treated to the documentary Supersonic, which traced the early years and rise to fame of the multi-platinum band; more recently, Gallagher's brother, vocalist Liam, announced the release of his debut solo LP, As You Were.
Confirmation of Who Built the Moon? follows recent rumors of an impending High Flying Birds release. As previously reported, Gallagher was a guest on Russell Brand's radio show in the spring, and although he was cagey about the details — only confirming that he'd recorded a song then titled "Instrumental No. 3" — he did allow that he was eyeing a November release date.
Gallagher will promote Who Built the Moon? with a 2018 tour that's scheduled to begin April 22 at the Brighton Centre — the first of a dozen announced dates that will take the group throughout the U.K. Look over the complete album track listing — and check out the full list of currently scheduled shows — below.
