In a new interview, Noel Gallagher has said that he wants to record an album of reworked Oasis tracks.
On BBC Radio 2, Noel Gallagher recently performed a stripped back rendition of their hit single “Live Forever.” Now, in an interview with the Daily Star, the Gallagher brother says that he’d be open to do an entire record of similar reworks.
“I would be interested in doing an album of reworks in the style of that version [of ‘Live Forever’],” Noel Gallagher says. “A bunch of Oasis reworks might be nice to do.”
“The original version is a young guy’s song who is singing it with his life in front of him,” he adds of the recent acoustic rendition. “When I hit that chord, I was like ‘Ah, this is like an old fella’s chord, who is looking back on his life.'”
Liam and Noel Gallagher recently unearthed an archival Knebworth “Champagne Supernova” performance. The clip comes from their forthcoming documentary, Oasis Knebworth 1996.
In the “Champagne Supernova” clip, filmed at the second of their legendary Knebworth sets, the band brings out The Stone Roses guitarist John Squire. The seven minute video is a must-watch for Oasis fans.
