Noel Gallagher reveals new single
Released today (May 31), the track is the fifth to be shared ahead of Gallagher‘s latest LP with High Flying Birds ‘Council Skies’, which is out this Friday (June 2) via Sour Mash.
It is noted that single has a retro touch and inspired from counterpart to its predecessors. Gallagher has rejoined forces with songwriter, composer and former Smiths guitarist Marr.
Discussing the meaning behind the track, the former Oasis frontman described ‘Open The Door, See What You Find’ as being about acceptance, and the peaceful realisation that each person has to accept the route that life will pave out for them.
“Lyrically, the premise is that, at a certain point in your life you look in a mirror and you see all you’ve ever been and all you’re ever going to be,” he explained. “It’s about being happy with that. Being happy with where you are in life, with who you are, and where you’re going. Life is good!”
The single also comes with a music video, which captures a cartoon-inspired kaleidoscope aesthetic, honing in on the theme of growth and development captured in the lyrics.
‘Open The Door, See What You Find’ also marks the second track from ‘Council Skies’ to feature a collaboration with Gallagher’s longtime friend Marr. Back in October 2022, Marr appeared on the first single from the upcoming LP, ‘Pretty Boy’.
Other singles to be released from the project — which is described as Noel’s “most complete solo statement to date” — include ‘Easy Now’, ‘Council Skies’ and the melancholic ‘Dead To The World’.
