One certainly can’t accuse Noel Gallagher of resting on his post-Oasis laurels. Endless creative horsepower is in the man’s genes, as demonstrated by the project he threw himself into immediately after Oasis called curtains in 2009.
Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds have since released three celebrated EPs and three UK #1 albums (the self-titled debut in 2011, 2015’s follow-up Chasing Yesterday, and most recently, the glam-psychedelia outing of 2017’s Who Built The Moon?), and this new retrospective marshals the top tracks from each, including two brand new ditties.
It’s been a decade of aural evolution in songcraft, but Gallagher seems (atypically?) humble about the fact: “Ten years of Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds? Blimey! Just think of all the things I could have done in that time!”
Check out the deluxe vinyl edition in the above image (which features a 32-page coffee table book, an etched 7” three CDs and four vinyl), and head to JB’s site or your nearest store to see the other vinyl and CD editions available.
