Oasis reveal more EP info
Oasis have revealed plans to release an EP in the summer.
The lead track is likely to be the Liam-penned 'The Boy With The Blues'.
The band plan to take most of 2006 off after a tour in support of 'Don't Believe The Truth', and plan to mark the event with the release of the EP.
"Liam's got this tune that's left over from the sessions called 'The Boy With The Blues', which he got in a right fucking arse about and it could've been on the record," Noel told NME.COM." And I would like to - because we've got a month off in January, we've GOT ALL of January off- I'd like to go back into the studio to add a bit more to it."
He added: "I'd like to put it out as a one-off single, 'cos if we spend January recording and mixing it, it could be out for the summer."
Noel described the track as "catchy as fuck" and "a bit like Spiritualized."
The guitarist went on to say: "There's not much of a chorus to speak of, which is why it didn't go on the album. [Producer] Dave Sardy was like, 'It needs a chorus,' but it's got this change at the end where the words go: 'Come all together/If we come all together/We'll come all together for you'.
"The lyrics alone sound like it's 'Come Together' but it doesn't sound anything like that. But it's a bit like Spiritualized, y'know, when they do that gospel thing. The bulk of the song is only about three minutes long but the outro could go on forever, really."
However, Noel admitted he hadn't spoken to Liam about going back into the studio.
"I haven't spoken to Liam about this. This'll be the first he hears of it when he reads it now and he'll be like, 'What the fuck are you on about?'. I'd like to put it out as a one-off single, 'cos if we spend January recording and mixing it, it could be out for the summer."
