Noel Gallagher has announced that he’s set to film the making of his new album at Abbey Road Studios.
The former Oasis guitarist took part in an interview on The Matt Morgan Podcast. During the interview, Noel Gallagher reveals that the “magic moments” of him and his band recording the new album will be documented. Unlike in the new Peter Jackson docuseries, The Beatles: Get Back, there won’t be footage of him writing the music.
“Me writing, once you’ve seen it for an hour, then you’ve seen it,” Noel Gallagher says in the interview. “They’re The Beatles and Paul McCartney is writing ‘Get Back and I’m writing a record which, frankly, with the best will of the world, not a lot of people are going to give a shit about. Me noodling away on the same five chords I’ve been using all my life going, ‘Sunshine, through the rain, can’t buy fame…’, it’s not got the same gravitas.”
Gallagher’s new album serves as the follow-up to 2017’s Who Built The Moon?. In the interview, he goes on to say that he’s already written the album. In fact, he plans to record it next month. On the record, there will be a couple of standout acoustic ballads.
“One is one of my favourite songs that I’ve ever written,” Noel Gallagher continues. “It’s got great chords and it’s very, very sad. In the verses the music is quite sad and the sentiment in the verses is quite strong, but in the chorus the music is quite uplifting and the words are quite sad. It’s a fucking great song.”
