Noel Gallagher finds ‘lost album’ in his sock drawer

4:48 pm, 28th August 2018

The Britpop star collaborated on a what he has dubbed a “space rock album” with the electronic duo Amorphous Androgynous.

He worked with the group prior to the release of the album Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds in 2011.

The joint record was never released, but two songs with the duo, The Right Stuff and The Mexican did feature on Gallagher’s latest album Chasing Yesterday which was released in March.

Garry Cobain from Amorphous Androgynous later claimed that the former Oasis guitarist is “too afraid to be weird”, adding that he would rather “do things exactly the same as ever”.

Gallagher has revealed in an interview with the comedian and radio presenter Matt Morgan that he recently unearthed a recording of the album, the NME reports.

He said: “I did find a copy of it recently in a sock drawer.

“The masters, somebody has them, the masters have not been destroyed – but it won’t be coming out any time soon.”

He added: “It might be nice to go back and revisit it in years to come, because ‘Shoot A Hole Into The Sun’ is f****** great and there might be more stuff like that in there.

“Best to give it a bit of distance though I think. It just wasn’t right for the time.”

Gallagher had previously discussed the album with the music news site Noisey in 2015.

He said: “The album got finished.

“We spent a lot of time working on it, but the way that they work is that they get me in and I play all day then they take it away.

“Then the next thing you hear, you go ‘well, that’s not what I was thinking’.

“It became apparent that they weren’t making a record for me but I was making a record for them.

“You know me, that’s not going to f****** work.”
