Noel Gallagher is aiming to finish a new album “by the end of the year”

Former Oasis man is headlining Latitude Festival this weekend.

Noel Gallagher has stated that his third solo album could be finished “by the end of the year.”

2015’s seen Gallagher releasing ‘Chasing Yesterday’ with his High Flying Birds band. The second post-Oasis release, it’s set to be met with a quick follow-up.

Speaking to Italian station Radio Citta Futura, Gallagher said he’ll be going into the studio within the next few weeks. “”I’ll do some work on it before the end of the year. I’m hoping to get it finished by the end of the year,” he said.

Asked whether or not it’ll be a departure from ‘Chasing Yesterday’, he said: “Sonically it sounds different, but it will still be very melodic and all that. It’s a new way of working for me, and I’m finding it very difficult, or very slow. So it’s like writing and recording as you go along, so there’s no sitting down writing all the songs and then going to record them, you’re kind of doing that in the studio, so that takes a lot longer, but the results at the moment are quite good.”

This weekend, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds headlines Latitude Festival.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will play Latitude (16th-19th July), where DIY is an official media partner. Tickets are on sale now. Visit diymag.com/presents for more information.
