Noel's Thinking Big For The Next Album
Oasis' Noel Gallagher is hoping to pull out all the stops when the band head into the studio to record their seventh studio LP later this year.
According to NME, the guitarist and chief songwriter is thinking big for the follow-up to 2005's huge-selling sixth LP, Dont Believe The Truth.
He told the weekly rock magazine: "All the tunes I've written recently have been on the kind of acoustic side, you know? But for the next record I really fancy doing a record where we just completely throw the kitchen sink at it.
"We havent done that since Be Here Now (the bands third LP). I'd like to get, like, a 100-piece orchestra and choirs and all that stuff.
"I think since Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants (the bands fourth LP) weve been trying to prove a point of just bass, drums, guitar and vocals nothing fancy. But I kind of like fancy! I'd like to make an absolutely colossal album.
And the Burnage rocker already has some songs in mind for the as-yet-untitled release.
Stop The Clocks
'Stop The Clocks' will eventually appear, then theres another one call 'I Wanna Live In A Dream In My Record Machine'.
It's about buying records, and I said to boys in Kasabian out in Ibiza, its kind of like a Champagne Supernova thing.
Noel also confirmed that just like on the previous release, the rest of the band will also contribute.
"Andy (Bell) and Liam (Gallagher) are writing stuff now, Im not sure what Andys songs are like, but Liams are kind of very Beatle-esque".
Apparently, one of Liams tracks has caught Noels ear in particular.
"'Boy With The Blues' could be as big or small as you want it to be. It could be like a gospel track or something".
Liam does gospel, now theres something to look forward to...
