Noel Gallagher has spoken to the Q magazine about his new album, Beady Eye split and his brother.
In fact, he said he’s “very fucking sad about Beady Eye, because I know they really wanted to make it work. I wanted it to work for them. Listen, I was out with Gem the other night. The vibe I’m getting is that it was a shock, although not completely surprising. I’m amazed Liam has chucked it in. But he won’t stay out of the limelight for long. I think Liam should make a solo record – put his balls on the line, and put his name in lights, and go for it”.
He talked about some of the tracks of his new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ that will be released in March (here we made a short recap about what we know about it).
He said that the opening song ‘Riverman’ is “the sound of 1970’s Sunset Boulevard with Santana playing lead guitar over a pothead groove, and a Pink Floyd saxophone player in the background”. On ‘Lock All The Doors’ he says he’s “nicked a bit from ‘Ever Fallen In Love (With Someone You Shouldn’t Have) by the Buzzcocks”. Moreover, there are a few reworked tracks from his collaboration with Amorphous Androgynous in 2011, ‘The Mexican’ is a stomper and ‘The Right Stuff’ is “proper psychedelic jazz”.
About the next single that is going to be released called The ‘Ballard Of Mighty I’ he stated that it sums up the entire album’s lyrical theme, “the things in life that will always remain slightly out of reach”. The hope in the song, he adds, “is that the chase is what is great”.
