In an exclusive interview with Xfm, Noel Gallagher has revealed that the Oasis follow-up to Dig Out Your Soul is already written and demoed.In a full on Track-By-Track discussion of the band's new album with Xposure's John Kennedy, Gallagher admitted the band's next album has been written on a miniature kids drum kit in a cupboard-sized studio.
Talking about 'Dig Out Your Soul' track 'Get Off Your High Horse Lady', he said: "There are another two songs that are really, really brilliant. One called 'I Want To Live In A Dream In My Record Machine' which is a big 'Champagne Supernova', 'Stairway To Heaven' thing, which is amazing. And another one called 'Come On It's Alright' which has a fifty-piece choir signing the chorus on it.
"I wrote and demoed a full album while we were in the studio. While we were mixing the album in the studio we had another studio that consisted of a cupboard and this little garage band thing in the corner. We bought a miniature kids drum kit and wrote another record."
Gallagher added the new songs he's written are sounding "sickeningly good".
"The new stuff is a proper concept. Have you heard Neil Young's 'Greendale'? I say it with a smile on my face because as I'm saying it, I'm thinking 'you pretentious cunt'. It's all songs about characters and all the songs will have titles and in brakets it'll be 'AKA The Shopkeeper'.
"I've got to say, they're sickeningly good. Dave Sardy (producer) was freaking out saying 'We should record these now'."
