Noel Gallagher says he is considering selling the rights to his back catalogue

Noel Gallagher has said that he is contemplating selling the rights to his back catalogue in 2025.

A number of major artists have sold the rights to their music, either in part or in full, in recent times, including Bob DylanPaul Simon and Neil Young.

Gallagher was asked in a new interview with Apple Music Hits’ Matt Wilkinson – where he was promoting ‘Back The Way We Came: Vol 1 – 2011-2021’, a ‘Best Of’ album by his High Flying Birds project – if he would ever consider selling the rights to his own back catalogue.

“Well, I get mine [the rights to his catalogue] back, all of it, in 2025, because I’ve been knocking years off the deal as opposed to taking money advances,” Gallagher said. “I was like, ‘I don’t need it anymore’.

“The way that I look at it is I’ll be approaching 60, and it’s like, do I want to leave it to my kids, who’ll probably swap it for a fucking PlayStation game? Or do I get rid of it now and set everybody up for life? Because I’ve always wanted to buy a fucking 88 super yacht, and call it… You know, you see them in the sea, and it’s like ‘Ocean Breeze’. I want to call mine ‘Mega Mega White Thing’. Like the biggest fucking super yacht of all time.”
