Noel Gallagher Scraps His Acoustic Album And Reveals His New Plan And More

Below are a number of quotes from Noel Gallagher's recent appearance on The Matt Morgan Podcast.

On his planned acoustic album: “I’ve scrapped the acoustic album finally, can’t f*cking do it anymore, yeah, it got six tunes in, and I was so bored with the arrangement of it all and the kind of slow pace of it all and, actually what made me think, right f*ck it, I’m not doing it"

"It started to sound like Council Skies without the string arrangements, do you know what I mean? It was the same kind of vibe or mood, shall we say. I think it’s time to make a defiant rock record which is what I’m gonna start when I get back."

On if the tracks 'God Help Us All' and 'Just Let It Come Down Over Me' will be released officially in the future. "Let’s put it this way, none of them are gonna go on this new record I’m starting on Monday. I had the idea of instead of making an album, maybe doing a couple of EPs… and putting them out. [But] it was too down. Acoustic tunes tend to be quite down and I think Council Skies had a bit of that to it… I was like, no that took me f*cking two years to make that record in that head space and I need to make a defiant rock record and that’s what I’m gonna do. Sorry everyone, I do apologise if anyone had their hearts set on it."

"I’ve got a lot of songs, as you know yourself. I’ve got a lot of songs and Council Skies, I would say… it had three different things to it: there was kind of uplifting acousticy things, there was a bit of melancholy to it and there was a bit of like, you know, rock 'n' roll pop music to it. And so that was an overall, I think it’s the best High Flying Birds album and actually it’s the first album I’ve made, bar Definitely Maybe that I would say that is perfect. 

"Every record I make tends to have some flaw to it that I think, right I’ll fix that next time, there’s something I don’t like about it. Well, I’m still listening to Council Skies and going, it’s f*cking perfect'. There’s nothing I could take away or add to that to make it any better than what it is."

On when we can expect to hear it: "I don’t know. Let me see where we end up. By the time I get to the end of this year and I finish touring after August… in my head now if I could demo it all by the end of the year or start to record it properly by the end of the year… could be, dunno… not next year cos then I’d have to go back out on tour next year and I’m not doing that… 2026 maybe?
