Promoting his new album on BBC Radio Manchester, Noel Gallagher says he will “never say never” about an Oasis reunion.
‘Council Skies’ will be his fourth studio album with the High Flying Birds and will come out next June 2nd.
For the occasion Noel Gallagher came back about an ipotetic reunion of his glorius band Oasis:
“You should never say never, it would have to take an extraordinary set of circumstances.”
“That’s not to say that those circumstances would never come about.”
Speaking about his new record said:
“It’s going back to the beginning – daydreaming, looking up at the sky and wondering about what life could be.“
“That’s as true to me now as it was in the early 90s when I was growing up in poverty and unemployment. Music took me out of that.”
“Top of the Pops on TV transformed your Thursday night into this fantasy world, and that’s what I think music should be – I want my music to be elevating and transforming in some way.”
He said his mum Peggy only realised Oasis had made the big time when they appeared on the BBC chart show.
“It wasn’t until we got on Top of the Pops that she actually accepted it”
Noel Gallagher said he remained as passionate about music as ever, though.
“I’m still in love with writing… and the creative processes. The whole thing never gets old for me.”
“I’m as much fascinated by it today as I was 13 years ago when I went solo and 30 years ago next year when ‘Definitely Maybe’ came out.”
“I love the feeling of creating something out of nothing and the journey that that song will take… all the way through to the studio then to playing it to people, then it being released and then hearing it on the radio.”
“It’s what kind of keeps you going.”
Noel said he has “never” considered being in Oasis as a burden.
He said it was “always a blessing to be able to go on stage… with songs that mean so much to people” and he understands people want to hear classic Oasis songs at his gigs.
“You’ve got to accept it and not get too precious about it and be thankful that you’ve actually written songs that still have legs after 25-30 years and not worry about it.”
